Community opens Del Paso Heights Sports Complex

November 29th, 2021

Sacramento community and city partners this week opened the Del Paso Heights Sports Complex, a project that is transforming an aging park and vacant lot near the Robertson Community Center into four futsal courts and a softball field. As part of the City of Sacramento’s increased focus on community investments, the new facility provides local families with access to sports fields and is expected to spur economic growth and youth employment opportunities in the Del Paso Heights neighborhood.

The Sacramento Republic FC professional soccer team joined the project to provide programming and resources to activate the futsal courts. The club is working with the U.S. Soccer Foundation and Black Players for Change to help fund the project. Kaiser Permanente, SMUD, Pacific Housing, Sierra Health Foundation and Citibank are long-standing project supporters.

“The Del Paso Heights Sports Complex is a powerful example of how we both serve and empower communities,” said Chet P. Hewitt, president and CEO of Sierra Health Foundation and The Center.
