A community organization in Franklin is hoping to work with the city to pursue, as FranklinNOW reporter Rick Romano refers to it, “a multipurpose sports and recreation facility…The planned facility is an ambitious mix of a multipurpose stadium for various sports, including baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse, rugby and hockey; a field house for basketball, volleyball, badminton and more; locker rooms; an aquatic center; a restaurant; and retail shops."
