The multi-sports box, located at 2430 Phillips Rd., accommodates various sports, including lacrosse, basketball, ball hockey and roller sports.

Plans for sports box have been floated for nearly a decade, finally getting a successful grant in 2020, but the pandemic put the project in the penalty box until now.

Funding for the project is from an $892,778 federal grant and a $400,000 contribution from SunRiver Estates.

The June 26 festivities run from 4 to 6:30 p.m.
