City of Livingston North Side Park & Soccer Complex
The Livingston Youth Soccer Association and the City of Livingston have partnered in developing a beautiful 18-acre city park complete with soccer fields, walking paths, open green space, picnic areas, a support building and multiple parking areas on the North Side Park. The North Side Park and Soccer Fields will directly improve the quality of life for community members, by providing public green space for recreation and leisure. Children in our community will benefit greatly from safe, well designed, soccer fields which will allow more youth to participate in this rapidly growing sport.
Phases 1 & 2 included developing 18 acres of new green space - with over 85 trees, picnic tables and park benches; building three soccer fields, surfaced walking paths, and 3 parking lots – all meeting the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Phase 1 has been open and enjoyed by the community since the Fall of 2011. This new green space has brought great value and many benefits to the entire Livingston community. Phase 2 opened to the public in the spring of 2014, completing the goal of converting 18 acres of city land into a premiere park for public recreation with incredible views of the surrounding mountains and the Yellowstone River.
LYSA and the City of Livingston are looking forward to the future and Phase 3: The Fieldhouse.
The Fieldhouse plans include areas for concessions, equipment storage, public restrooms, and a community event rental space. Designed to not only make the most of its scenic setting and to provide much needed amenities, “The Fieldhouse” will also be an income generator. Income from concession sales and rental feeswill help support park maintenance for years to come. The community rental space and accompanying porch will have an indoor/outdoor capacity of 250- 300 people, and is designed to support catering needs for various events. Once construction is complete, Phase 3 will be open for public use immediately. At that point, not only will LYSA be able to properly maintain the fields and provide concessions at games, but the public rental space will be available for other major community events and meetings. LYSA hopes to begin construction in early 2016.
We encourage all area residents to visit the park and see for themselves what a wonderful asset the North Side Park and Soccer Fields are to the entire Livingston community.
