This was the budget hearing for the Parks Department, and the PowerPoint presentation of Parks Director, John Williams. The presentation did indeed list the World Sports Park as a "2012 Accomplishment". I went over to WTCY and located the video from that hearing and have embedded the full 24 seconds related to this park:
Mayor Greg Ballard revealed Tuesday during a trade mission to India that Indianapolis hopes to host the inaugural United States Cricketing Championship next summer or fall.
It was the first public announcement of the city's plans, and suddenly shed light on a $6 million project to create a complex that would host the event on the city's far east side.
Already, Ballard has enlisted the Indiana Sports Corp. and Visit Indy, the city’s tourism arm, to help attract, promote and conduct the cricket event, according to Marc Lotter, a spokesman for the mayor. The event will be sanctioned by the United States of America Cricket Association.
Lotter told IBJ the effort to host the event is part of the initiative to transform a 40-acre city park in the 1300 block of South Post Road into an international sports complex capable of hosting local, regional, national and international cricket, rugby, lacrosse and hurling events.
One multi-use field already is complete at the Post Road Community Park and is being used by the city’s local cricket club, Lotter said. The park will be renamed Indianapolis World Sports Park.
The $6 million project began two years ago. Lotter said that once it is complete in summer or fall of 2014, the park will have five athletic fields and be capable of holding events attracting as many as 10,000 spectators.
10,000 spectators. Here is the aerial of the park property at 1300 S. Post Road, captured as a screen shot from MapIndy. This aerial was taken in the spring of 2012, and you'll note the cricket playing field was not yet installed.
