The City of Margate is hosting a Grand Opening celebration on Saturday, Sept. 18,  6-10 p.m. to inaugurate the new open-air, multi-purpose, weather-protected covered field at the Margate Sports Complex, located within the Margate Community Redevelopment Agency (MCRA) district at 1695 Banks Road. The event is free and open to the public. 

"This is a much-awaited addition to the existing park amenities and is a total game-changer," said MCRA Chair Tommy Ruzzano. "Thanks to the new covered facility, our sports enthusiasts can play year-round without getting overheated or drenched by rain. I promise you; you’ll love it.”

The new facility was built on the 1.5-acre parcel owned by the MCRA and adjacent to the Sports Complex. It features an artificial turf surface, bleachers, and a concession building. The covered sports field is expected to become a popular hub of future sports and other special events in the City of Margate and its surroundings. 

“Margate takes great pride in being the home of the most innovative and family-friendly parks in Broward County. This new, expansive covered field located at the Sports Complex is just another example of cutting edge, out-of-the-box thinking that adds to the great quality of life we enjoy in our community,” said Margate Mayor Arlene R. Schwartz. 

The project is part of the MCRA's initiatives to revitalize the area along State Road 7/US 441 as a focal point for commercial and recreational activities.
