 Canton Sports Center to reopen

The Canton Sports Center, a popular sports destination for local softball/baseball leagues and national tournaments, will reopen for the 2024 season after undergoing significant renovations with a special event set for May 1.  

To celebrate the completion of the $1.2 million renovations, the Canton Sports Center will host “Light Up the Park,” a special opening-day event. The special ceremony will feature Canton Township Supervisor Anne Marie Graham-Hudak and the elected officials of the Canton Board of Trustees. The event will begin at 8 p.m., with public festivities scheduled from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. including softball and baseball games; Kicker’s pizza party; glow party contests and DJ Royce. 

This active facility, located in Canton Victory Park, was recently upgraded with a new state-of-the-art LED lighting system, that will improve on-field lighting and visibility in its 12 softball fields, as well as reduce energy consumption and enhance the overall experience for players and spectators.

Additional renovations included the replacement of all concrete sidewalks surrounding the facility, with several sidewalks leading to the 12 softball fields. The remainder of these sidewalk are scheduled for replacement in October, officials said.

“The Canton Sports Center is an incredible asset to our community, as well as a high-demand sports destination,” said Greg Hohenberger, Canton Leisure Services director. “All of these renovations show that Canton Township is committed to recreation and to providing opportunities for all ages to participate in baseball, softball, cricket, lacrosse, flag football, and more.” 

The Canton Sports Center is located at 46555 W. Michigan Ave. and features a 12-diamond lighted softball/baseball operation with state-of-the-art facilities, as well as Kicker’s Bar & Grill. The complex annually plays host to several national tournaments that produce a significant economic impact to the area; at times generating over $1 million in revenue for area businesses.
