Hardy Field Complex

Located along Tuscarawas Road, on the site of the former Brighton Township Elementary School, this athletic park property spans 22 acres and is the most widely-used sports facility in the township. Local residents use the complex to play and watch soccer, football and baseball. It also features a playground, paved walking trails, picnic shelter, concession stand and indoor restrooms.

 

It is the centerpiece for recreation in Brighton Township and is a top-notch facility providing activities for the entire family.

 

The Brighton Township Bears team has used the football field here for six decades, and a new football field was dedicated in 2013. In addition to the Beaver Area, the team welcomes players and cheerleaders from the Ohioville, Industry and Midland communities.

 

The American Legion-size baseball field is used by the Brighton Township Baseball Club and is the home field of the Beaver Area High School baseball team.  The field features an electronic scoreboard.

 

The complex is the home of the Brighton Township-Beaver Soccer Association used by students of all ages ranging from five to 18. The Beaver Area Middle School soccer teams also use the fields.

Connecting walking tracks around the soccer and baseball fields provide exercise and recreational opportunity for anyone at any time. A new playground was installed in 2015 and expanded in 2016. Concession, storage and indoor restrooms, connected with a series of sidewalks and stairs, also provide convenience and comfort. Parking lots have been expanded and paved, with parking islands, lighting and landscaping. Pets are not permitted within the park.

 

Extensive improvements to the complex began in 2012 with the receipt of a $100,000 grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. More than $750,000 will have been invested in the complex over the span of a decade. The township purchased the complex in 2005 from the Beaver Area School District.
