Pflugerville hired Halff and Associates to conduct an Athletic Complex and Randig Tract Feasibility study for the city. While there are opportunities for a variety of sports play in Pflugerville, this study specifically outlines its focus on needs for baseball, football, soccer and softball.
Study recommendations / findings:
4 baseball fields, 4 new softball fields and converting the Little League Complex to a practice facility.
4 new lighted football fields and lighted practice space
6-10 new soccer fields and upgrades to Wells Point Soccer Complex
Potential solutions include: New multi-sport complex, Wells Point enhancements, Pfennig Park repurposing and Little League complex maintenance.
The study concluded that the Randig Tract was more ideal for passive recreation (activities such as walking, hiking, picnicking or fishing) rather than active recreational use (organized sports/group activities).
