GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - There was a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday morning for the new Ascension Parish Multi-Sports Complex.

The event was held at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales around 9 a.m. The complex features seven tournament-based lighted soccer fields, restrooms, and concession stands, as well as paved parking and its own entrance from S St. Landry Avenue.

"With this complex, we have a place for our people to enjoy a variety of sports and leisure activities," said Matassa. "Plus, it enables us to host state and regional tournaments, which is great for economic development."

The parish has partnered with the Gonzales Soccer Club to maintain and operate the $4.5 million complex. Scheduling of events will be coordinated with the Parish Recreation Department.
