One field is nearly ready and the groundbreaking for another is on the way.
When both pieces of the North Greenwood recreation valhalla is complete it also will feature a new name - Tampa Bay Buccaneers Field.
Sure the team plays at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, however, the $300,000 cost for the field in Clearwater's hardscrabble North Greenwood neighborhood is partially funded through a grant from the NFL and Clearwater for Youth.
The project added lights, irrigation, dirt, grass and uprights to a former parking lot near Jack Russell Stadium.
The groundbreaking ceremony is planned for Sept. 4.
Just about a , the new field adjacent to the the recently expanded and r is nearly ready for use.
The two-part project includes the full-size, lighted field capable of use for soccer or football. The second part of the project adds the additional practice facilities to the site.
