Nestled near the Tonto National Forest and surrounded by picturesque bodies of water, Mesa, Arizona, is the ideal destination for sporting events and activities. As the 37th largest city in the United States, Mesa offers an inclusive environment for people of all abilities to stay and play. The East Valley has a proud history of hosting numerous sporting events that scale from youth to professional and everything in between.
Branded as “City Limitless” and nationally recognized for their designation on becoming the first Autism Certified City, Mesa’s work towards inclusivity and accessibility provides limitless growth and limitless sports potential for residents and visitors.
For decades, Mesa City Park facilities like Gene Autry Baseball Complex, Red Mountain Soccer Complex and Hohokam Stadium (Springing Training home of the Oakland A’s) have been household names and sought-after venues for organizations hosting various events. Mesa’s world-class family sports complex, Legacy Sports Park, brought in an impressive number of courts, fields, diamonds, and indoor space (19 basketball courts, 57 volleyball courts, 24 turfed fields, 8 diamonds, 12 sand volleyball courts, 22 futsal courts, a 2,500-capacity stadium and 41 pickleball courts to be exact) putting Mesa on the radar for new major market sports clients from around the nation. Mesa refused to be a “one trick pony”.
Mesa’s extraordinary sport venues continue to give athletes, fans, and families more to look forward to in the world of athletics. 2023 ushered the opening of Lehi Sports Park (5 lighted flat fields, streaming capabilities, vendor hook ups, bathrooms and gated parking), Gene Autry Tennis Center’s expansion (16 lighted tennis courts, 13 pickleball courts and 4 sand volleyball courts).
Mesa is also expecting new additions to the region that are proving to be “game changers” for the destination; Monterey Park, Cannon Beach Surf Park, and a massive expansion to Red Mountain Soccer Complex that will house 15 full-size lighted flat fields upon completion in November 2024.
Going beyond city limits, Visit Mesa represents the Town of Queen Creek that is home to a world-renowned equestrian center in Horseshoe Park and will soon be adding Frontier Family Park for visitors and residents to enjoy by the end of 2024 (this development will include flat fields, baseball diamonds, pickleball courts, basketball courts and a lake).
Building on the momentum of a booming downtown district packed full of local restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, and a legit pub crawl scene, Mesa has found the perfect balance of becoming a rejuvenated trendy-throwback with big league accommodations.
