At HOPE SPORTS COMPLEX we have created a family friendly environment for everyone to enjoy, including athletes and spectators. As of July 28, 2013, the park was no longer considered a county park. A public (City of Lansing owned property) and private entity (Mid Michigan Sports Turf, LLC) partnership was formed. The park is primarily used as an outdoor rental facility for various sports and events.
Groups interested in renting field space should please contact HOPE SPORTS COMPLEX at (517) 319-0344 for reservations or email firstname.lastname@example.org. All fields require reservations!
RULES OF HOPE SPORTS COMPLEX

No drop off of athletes. Please park your car completely and have athletes use sidewalks to get to their appropriate field. Dropping off athletes in the driveway areas is hazardous.
Please do not park in designated Handicap Parking spaces without a valid handicap sticker!
Please do not use your cell phones while driving on the park premises!
Warming up on unreserved fields is prohibited
Please do not drive or park on grass

FOOD and BEVERAGE
"CLEATS BAR and GRILLE" is open until the end of November. We reopen every spring around mid-March. Cleats has an amazing menu and can offer special event pricing and customized menus for social gatherings, corporate events, birthday and graduation parties and a number of other options. Weddings have been added to our list of events so please give us a call to make your most unique wedding dreams come true!
Ongoing support of the Complex is critical for the success and growth of this exciting Mid-Michigan project, therefore, no coolers, grills or any private tailgating equipment is allowed. 100% of the profits collected for parking and food/beverage go back into the park. Our goal is to keep the cafe pricing competitive to encourage onsite purchases.
No staked tents allowed. Popups are OK but we DO NOT RECOMMEND because of the wind at the park!
No tailgating is allowed.
No outside merchandise or food vendors allowed unless prior approval - please contact Hope Sports Complex at (517) 319-0344 with questions.
A tremendous effort has been made to make the playing surfaces of the fields exceptional. Please pick up your trash, tape, debris, wrappers, empty bottles, etc. Please leave your area in better condition as to when you arrived.
Please notify a coach or staff member of any issues related to the bathroom facilities.
If you notice an issue with any field (large divot, unsecured goal, broken sprinkler head, etc) please notify staff immediately, or email Julie at email@example.com.
Thank you for following these important rules, we truly appreciate it! We have a long-term lease which will allow us to continue to pursue our goals. Additional outdoor fields, (both turf and grass), full size indoor dome(s), dormitories for summer camps, locker rooms, additional food and beverage service are part of our expansion, which is slated to begin in 2023.
Mid-Michigan is a wonderful place to visit or live and raise a family. We love what we are bringing to the area and hope to make HOPE SPORTS COMPLEX a nationally known sports field and event destination! Thank you for your thoughtfulness and contribution!!!
