The Gulfport Sportsplex is a 250-acre recreational park located near Interstate-10 within the city limits of Gulfport.
The construction of the Gulfport Sportsplex is a multi-phase project designed by the Gulfport Department of Leisure Services. This project stemmed from a departmental master plan conducted in 1995 in which citizens of Gulfport along with committee members called for a multi-purpose recreational complex that could provide a wide array of recreational opportunities and activities as well as generate revenue and cater to the tourism market of many sports activities. Construction began in 1995.
The Gulfport Sportsplex now has the only lightning prediction system on the market. The L75R can adequately cover a 250-acre facility, making this system a must have for facilities of this size.
