USA Softball to Cease Operations for 2017
On January 1, 2017 the Urbandale Sports Association (USA), who had leased Walker Johnston Softball complex from the City of Urbandale, defaulted on a loan that the City was a guarantor on. This resulted in the City being required to pay off the balance of the loan and initiated a clause in the lease, which terminated their lease.
The City offered USA an opportunity to rent the fields to continue to provide adult softball at the complex, but they declined the proposed rental agreement offered by the City.
The City of Urbandale has made arrangements to manage and operate the complex and will rent out the fields for tournament and non-tournament play for the 2017 season. Starting March 1, 2017, the City will begin taking rental reservations for use of the fields from April 3 to October 15, 2017.
Questions regarding rental opportunities can be directed to the City of Urbandale’s Park and Recreation Department at 515-278-3963 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
