Up to four new baseball fields, five soccer fields, and eight pickleball courts are expected to be designed and built in Las Cruces in the next year or so.
The projects will also include the building of a dog park and improvements to tennis and basketball courts at nearly a dozen parks in the city.
Funding for the various project is coming from a $35 million general obligation bond approved by Las Cruces voters.
That money will also pay for the building of an entirely new park on the East Mesa that would take up 10 acres at the intersection of Camino Coyote Lane and Sonoma Ranch Boulevard.
The dog park is slated to also go up in the East Mesa area, while another project could see the expansion of the popular Metro Verde Splash Pad and Park at 7125 Metro Park Street
