Warren County Park District Announces Grand Reopening of Softball Complex


WARREN COUNTY, OH --  Warren County Park District is pleased to announce the grand reopening of the newly updated Armco Park Softball Complex with a ribbon cutting on Friday, April 26, 2024, at 3:00 p.m. The Park District is inviting the community to join in celebrating the completion of new synthetic turf infields and the addition of a donated Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to the complex. 

State Senator Steve Wilson will be in attendance to present a commendation letter from Ohio Senate President Matt Huffman.

"Warren County Park District is committed to providing clean, well maintained, and safe facilities for our park customers. Our newly updated synthetic turf infields will provide players and coaches with an improved playing experience, while increasing playing time and reducing day-to-day maintenance needs," said Matt Latham, Chief Executive Officer for the Park District. "We would like to thank the Warren County Commissioners for the American Rescue Plan Act grant that made this possible, and ‘REALTORS® with Heart’ for supporting our goal of improving safety by donating an AED."

The Armco Park Softball Complex features four lighted softball fields with synthetic turf infields and natural grass outfields. Designed to accommodate softball of all types, and baseball for youths 12 and under, the Complex is home to several leagues throughout the year and regularly hosts large tournaments.

Eddie Oligee, Softball Coordinator for Armco Park says, "Chief Operating Officer Larry Easterly and I had envisioned this happening since the Park District acquired Armco Park in 2008 with the help of the County Commissioners, Turtlecreek Township, and Otterbein Senior Life. The dream is finally realized!"

“The REALTOR® Alliance of Greater Cincinnati stands proudly behind the Warren County Park District's commitment to safety and community well-being. The addition of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to the Armco Park Softball Complex not only enhances the overall experience for players and spectators but also underscores the importance of preparedness in any public space. We commend this initiative and look forward to seeing the impact it will have in ensuring the safety of all who enjoy this wonderful facility." - Tracy Dunne, President, REALTOR® Alliance of Greater Cincinnati
