Phase I has been completed and already looking at Phase II and III to include walking paths, shaded areas, and sand volleyball. We couldn’t have done this without the support of so many community minded individuals, companies, foundations, etc and encourage anyone that hasn’t already been to the complex to come out and see it. There are a lot a projects needing to be completed that maybe you would consider the support. Items we are still looking for funds to help off-set expenses are:

  • Sound system
  • Shaded viewing areas
  • Sand volleyball courts
  • Nice practice field area
  • Additional landscaping
  • Trees lining east side of the complex to help add some privacy for our neighbors

If you are interested in helping off-set some of the above mentioned expense, please consider a donation to the Baxter Sports Complex (Fort Madison Sports Complex is a 501c3 organization).  Donor cards are below or you can use the PayPal account at the bottom of this page.  All donations can be made out to Fort Madison Economic Development and are tax deductible.
