Chesterfield Hockey Association Constructs Chesterfield SportsComplex

A new Chesterfield SportsComplex is under construction, and it’s scheduled to open in fall 2019. Located on 12 acres adjacent to the Simon Premium Outlet Mall in the Valley, the complex is designed to replace the services of the demolished Hardee’s IcePlex.

The new 84,000-square-foot facility will feature two NHL-sized rinks, seating for approximately 2,000 spectators, a second-floor viewing platform, locker rooms, team meeting rooms and offices. The estimated cost for the complex is $21.5 million.

Aside from Chesterfield Hockey Association, Maryville University will be the exclusive university to call the Chesterfield SportsComplex home for its newly added men’s and women’s collegiate hockey programs. Local high schools committed to using the new facility include Marquette, Lafayette, Parkway West, St. Louis Priory and Fort Zumwalt West.

Chesterfield Hockey Association was founded in 1995 as a nonprofit corporation established for the development and operation of amateur youth hockey in West St. Louis County. CHA enrolls about 400 players each season and hundreds more in spring and summer leagues.

Did You Plug into Chesterfield Recreational Master Plan?

A total of 1,200 Chesterfield residents recently were randomly mailed a survey from the City of Chesterfield Parks, Recreation & Arts Department staffers. This step supplemented the online survey conducted in August, from which feedback was secured from 1,286 participants.

Tom McCarthy, director of the parks department, says the survey’s objective was to pinpoint how users most enjoy local parks and recreational services.

The survey included questions prioritizing future recreational facilities, programs, parks and arts.

Tom says results were tabulated and factored into the department’s strategic plans for the next five to 15 years regarding residents’ interests in more green space, trails, special events, recreational centers and financial expenditures.

Survey results can be viewed online at Chesterfield.MO.US/parks-master-plan.html.
