CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Chesterfield officials on Wednesday announced that the county intends to purchase the 115-acre River City Sportsplex, formerly known as Sports Quest.

The county plans to purchase the complex from Sports Complex Holdings, LLC for $5.5 million.

“This is a huge opportunity for the county residents to get more use of this facility and increase sports tourism,” County Administrator Dr. Joe Casey said. “With sports tourism being a growing business in Chesterfield, the upcoming community open house will give residents a chance to view the property and ask questions about the purchase and the future potential of the sportsplex.”

An open house will be held for residents to tour the facility and ask questions about the planned purchase on November 2 at Clover Hill High School.
