Kearney City Council announced the name they have planned for a new youth sports complex Tuesday night.
They are going with "Patriot Park" for the complex which will have four baseball fields and four softball fields. The name is fitting as the park will be situated right across the street from where the new veterans home will be.
Right now Kearney only has one softball field for games.
In November, voters approved a one percent restaurant tax to fund the new ball fields that are needed for practices. The city is hoping to have plans in place by September 1st and have the ball fields ready to play on by the summer of 2017.
