Ideal venue for soccer & football tournaments

Spring Creek Sports Complex is one of Central best Iowa’s venues for soccer and football tournaments.

Teams from across the state come here each year for massive events like GPS Iowa’s Summer Kickoff and Fall Classic tournaments. And it makes sense why!

Spring Creek Sports Complex has 14 full-sized grass fields and 1 full-sized turf field with bleachers, lighting, a scoreboard and goal posts. Plus, each of the grass fields can be divided into smaller playing areas, giving tournament organizers the ability to essentially double their capacity!

Lots of amenities for both players & spectators

Fear not, non-athletes. There’s plenty to do both on AND off the field at Spring Creek Sports Complex!

In the center of the park, you’ll find a gorgeous pavilion complete with a concessions stand, covered seating area, and spacious indoor bathrooms. It’s the perfect spot to hang out between games. Plus, there’s an on-site playground located just a few steps away!

Load up on snacks and drinks. Catch some shade. Take a load off while the kids run around!

If you want a change of scenery, head north to Falcon Ridge Park or south to Spring Creek Park. Both of these beautiful outdoor spaces are just a 15-minute walk away from the pavilion!

Bringing value to the Altoona community

Spring Creek Sports Complex offers so much more than just space for recreation. It actually helps stimulate fiscal growth within our community!
