Soccer players welcome new mini-pitch

Wednesday, November 24, 2021 by Tai Moses

An underused tennis court in a Montopolis park has been transformed into a state-of-the-art mini-pitch, thanks to a partnership between Austin FC and the U.S. Soccer Foundation and the Parks and Recreation Department. The Civitan Neighborhood Park mini-pitch “will provide local families and residents with free and safe recreation space to gather, play soccer, and stay active and healthy,” according to a release from the city, which notes that the new facility joins two other mini-pitches in the greater Austin area installed by the 4ATX Foundation. Community members are invited to check out the brand-new mini-pitch at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Dec. 7, 2-3 p.m., at 513 Vargas Road.
