FIELD-HLADKY MEMORIAL STADIUM AT VOLUNTEER PARK was built in 1990 and received it's name because of the generous volunteers such as the Hladky family who helped build and fund the field; as well as the numerous volunteers who maintain the field year in and year out. 

DIRECTIONS- Corner of Warlow Drive and Gurley Avenue. Next to the Gillette Acquatic Center.  Address is 917 E Longmont

DIMENSIONS-The yard measures 320ft down the left and right field lines, 379ft to the left-center gap, 376ft to the right-center gap, and 400ft to straight away centerfield. 

TURF- NEW IN 2013- In the fall of 2012, the infield received a complete makeover. Academy Sports Turf from Englewood Colorado, installed new state of the art field turf across the entire infield, including the batters boxes. The entire warning track was also turfed. Finally, a NCAA approved turf mound rounds out the beautiful infield, making this field like none other in the region.

EXTRAS- The facility also received a facelift in the summer of 2013, when over 60 beautiful evergreen trees were planted, as well as landscaping river rock and wood chips. Brand new sidewalks were installed as walkways were narrowed down all around the ballpark. This playing surface and top notch facilities make Roughrider Stadium one of the top fields in the country. 

FACILITIES: Grandstand seating, a giant inning by inning scoreboard with Riders arch, state of the art lighting, turfed outdoor cage, turfed bullpens, new concession stand, pressbox, team clubhouse.

VOLUNTEER FIELDHOUSE- In 2009 a 60x120 ft indoor hitting/pitching facility was built. The building which is located adjacent to the field is fully turfed and has indoor cages and pitching mounds.

 NEW FOR 2014 WILL BE A NEW CONCESSION STAND WITH A DECK AREA FOR SEATING IN FRONT OF IT. 

THINGS TO DO:

  • CAMPBELL COUNTY REC CENTER-The Campbell County Recreation Center had its Grand Opening Celebration on Wednesday, April 7, 2010. The new facility features many new amenities including a 42-foot climbing wall designed to resemble aspects of Devil’s Tower Monument and serves as the focal point of the spacious lobby to honor this national icon. The facility will also include: a six-lane lap pool, a three-meter diving platform, a zero-depth leisure pool including two water slides, a lazy river and many toy features, three basketball courts, four racquetball courts, elevated walking track, kids zone used for baby-sitting, concessions, weight room, cardio area, three exercise rooms, two birthday party rooms, two tanning beds, training and locker rooms. The partnership developed in this project with the Campbell County School District allowed for an 81,000-square-foot field house with a six lane, 200-meter track and five indoor tennis courts. This unique 190,000-square foot facility will have the advantage of combining a full-service recreation center with a multi-use competitive sports and training facility.
