Spokane County voters may be asked next spring to approve a $45 million dollar park levy that would pay for a new sports complex in downtown along with improvements at county parks.
It's a dirt lot now but a site along the north bank of the Spokane River could be home to a massive $20 million multi-use field house complete with an indoor track.
Over at Plante's Ferry Park, that site could see a major upgrade with additional soccer fields and parking.
These are just two of the items that could be considered on a potential park levy in April 2015 that Spokane County Parks Director Doug Chase said is a long time coming.
"We really think they are heavily used and enjoyed by the community and this is one of the opportunities where the community would see that direct return," Chase explained.
Additionally, the Southside Aquatics Center would add two watersides and develop 10 acres of park land around it, complete with baseball fields, improvements to Fish Lake Trail would be made and approximately 10 county parks could be modernized and get new playground equipment.
