CHARLESTOWN, Ind. (AP) - Plans are in the works for a 120-acre (49-hectare) sports complex in southern Indiana that’s expected to draw youth and league competition from throughout the region.

The News and Tribune reports Charlestown leaders recently announced the City of Charlestown Family Sports Park Master Plan that’s expected to be completed in phases over the next five to six years.

The complex will include an indoor facility for soccer, training and conference space. Other fields and areas are planned outside for soccer, baseball and sand volleyball. Playgrounds are planned, as well as a lake for swimming, fishing and kayaking. There also will be areas for walking or biking.

The bulk of space for the project comes in the form of a roughly $8 million land gift from the River Ridge Development Authority.
