Wednesday, the Chamber of Business & Industry of Centre County helped cut the ribbon for the Nittany Valley Sports Centre.
The centre will have it’s official opening later in April but has already welcomed in the public.
The complex features a turf field and basketball court and phase two of the project will bring in more indoor volleyball and basketball courts.
Local businesses hope the centree brings new families to the area for tournaments
“The great thing about families who travel together is that while the children are out playing sports, maybe mom and dad can go out and visit Centre County and see some of our great attractions, museums, and cultural facilities and try our restaurants.”
-Fritz Smith, Centre County Visitors Bureau
The centre hopes to have construction started on phase 2 of the project by this summer.
