The township purchased 26 acres of land adjacent to and behind Jerusalem Elementary on Sacks Road in 2001. The dream was to build a sports complex that the school and area youth could use as a practice activity area and potential sports complex.

The site currently has a baseball and softball diamond with 60 to 75 feet adjustable base paths and space for soccer fields of various sizes.

A pavilion shelter house is available for use with picnic tables. The next phase is to construct a walking trail around the perimeter of the complex.
