About U.S. Cellular Community Park

U.S. Cellular Community Park (USCCP) is a $36 million, 132-acre state-of-the-art sports park owned by the City of Medford and operated by the Medford Parks and Recreation Department. Located between U.S. Highway 99 and Interstate 5 on the southern end of Medford, USCCP is the City's largest developed park property.
 
USCCP is distinctive for its 11 all-weather, fence-to-fence artificial turf fields that allow for year-round use with a minimal amount of downtime for field maintenance. The park features 1.4 million square-feet of FieldTurf-brand synthetic grass -- the largest municipal sports park of its type in the United States. All fields feature Daktronics scoreboards and Musco System Green lighting systems.
 
Three of the park's four planned construction phases are complete. Phase 2 (the five-field softball-baseball complex) opened in May 2008 and is the home to Oregon's largest municipal adult softball league. Phase 3 (the six-field multi-sport complex) contains a 1,300-seat stadium field -- one of five permanently lined soccer/football fields -- and a full-size baseball field (Charter Field).
 
In October 2013, the Medford City Council approved an airport car rental tax increase to fund the fourth phase of park construction: two 275-foot ballfields, a full-size baseball stadium field (that will also feature a soccer overlay), a 200-stall parking lot and a small dog park.

Bisected by Bear Creek, a tributary of the Rogue River, USCCP is also home to the Coyote Trails Jefferson Nature Center, a public-private partnership that provides outdoor recreation and environmental education classes and programs. The park also serves as a major hub along the 20-mile-long Bear Creek Greenway pathway that stretches from Ashland to Central Point.
 
U.S. Cellular purchased facility naming-rights in 2008 as a part of a six-year, $650,000 agreement -- the largest public facility per-year naming rights agreement in Oregon history.
 
USCCP is the home to one of Oregon's largest club soccer programs (the Rogue Valley Timbers Soccer Club), St. Mary's High soccer teams and Cascade Christian football, soccer, baseball and softball teams, with facility usage dictated by mutually beneficial cooperative use agreements.

When complete, USCCP will feature 15 ball fields, including a five-field softball/baseball complex, a five-field multi-sport complex, two full-size baseball fields and two youth baseball/fastpitch fields. Harry & David Field, a natural-grass baseball stadium, is also part of USCCP.
 
Future park amenities may include championship-caliber sand volleyball courts, a multi-purpose indoor facility, a pedestrian bridge over Bear Creek connecting complexes and a covered picnic area.
