The City of New Roads’ will celebrate the opening of its new Community Field this Friday, Oct. 5, with a special inaugural ceremony and first game. Mayor Robert Myer said the inaugural ceremony will begin at 7:15 p.m. and will include many memorable events.

Myer and a spokesperson from NRG Energy, Inc., a major sponsor of the new field, will officially “open” the venue. The field’s first football game will follow at 7:30 p.m., featuring the Green Hornets of Catholic of Pointe Coupee homecoming game against the Fighting Blue Jays of St. Edmund High School.

The field will be used throughout the season by both Catholic of Pointe Coupee and Pointe Coupee Central High School, Myer said. The field will serve as home to many local events, including football and soccer events, and as a venue for Pointe Coupee Parish recreational programs.

The new field construction represents the completion of the second phase of the city’s Community Park Revitalization Project– the first phase was the renovation of the old historic cotton mill, which is adjacent to the field, and the third phase of the park’s construction will include community green space, splash pad, skate park, and walking trails. Landscaping, groomed sidewalks and parking spaces will complete the park’s design.

“This park will be a centerpiece for our city,” Myer said. “It will provide our residents and visitors with a clean, safe outdoor recreation and activity area where families and neighbors can come together.”

Myer said residents can help support the new field and defray some of its construction costs, as well as leave a lasting mark on the community, by investing in a memorial brick or seatback plaque.

He said supporters can personalize a 12-inch by 12-inch engraved brick, which will be placed in Champions Plaza, located between the football field and the cotton mill, for a donation of $200; or they can purchase a personalized stainless steel seatback plaque in the memorial section of the bleachers at Community Field for a donation of $350. Order forms will be available at Friday’s game and at City Hall.
