Tower Park Athletic Complex - Facility Now Closed

***Community Update - May 30, 2024***

Construction activity has begun and will steadily increase over the next few weeks.  In the interest of protecting the community, we have closed the facility to all activities until further notice.  As this is now a construction zone, please respect this decision as we work to create an amazing new facility for the community and athletes.

 

Overview/Content

The following information is to provide an overview of construction/renovation work being conducted at the Tower Park Athletic Complex. Please note that all of the information is an estimate and dates, closures and scope of work may be impacted by a variety of factors. 

Tower Park Athletic Complex is being planned for completion in two phases. Fort Thomas Independent Schools have approved a project, through collaboration with the City of Fort Thomas, to make changes that will significantly improve the student and community experience. At the conclusion of the project, enhancements will include: increased parking, improved traffic flow and entrances, safe drop off of students and athletes, sidewalk connection to Tower Park, accessible seating, improved handicap access to the venue, community access to restroom facilities, expanded track and soccer opportunities, emergency shelter, opportunities for student broadcast, community access to technology, improved sound, energy-efficient lighting and practice facilities for a number of student groups/teams, among other enhancements and design elements consistent with Tower Park architecture and community aesthetics.
