Troy Sportsplex

The Troy Sportsplex opened in the Spring of 1991 and continues to grow in size and popularity. The Sportsplex is located on the Enzor Road, off Highway 167 in Troy. Original construction of the 65 acres of Phase I included four softball fields with a centralized pressbox. Youth and adult softball leagues play regular season and tournament games at the Sportsplex, while baseball tournaments have also been played on the 285-foot fields. In 1995, the Sportsplex was the host of the Dixie Boys World Series. The tournament returned again in 1998, and Troy hosted the 2007 Ozone World Series as well. All fields are available for practices, but must be reserved in advance by calling our main office. In addition to the ballparks, the open space of the Sportsplex is very popular for a variety of outdoor recreation.

Phase II of the Sportsplex opened in 1996, with four new fields and another state-of the-art pressbox. Two fields measure 200 feet in distance while the other two are 285 feet. Eight fully-automated batting cages also opened in 1996, offering a variety of baseball pitching speeds, as well as slow pitch and fastpitch softball.

Land for Phase III was later purchased adjacent to the Sportsplex, totaling approximately 70 acres. A 1.1 paved walking trail opened in the summer of 2010, with plans to expand the length of the trail.

Troy Miracle League Field and Playground

The Troy Miracle League Field was a joint fund-raising project by the City of Troy, The Troy Lion's Club and many community and individual contributors. The rubberized safety-surface field opened in the summer of 2011, and is a field designed for children and adults with special needs to play baseball. The season runs during the months of April and May.

The Miracle League Playground opened in September of 2013, and is located in the front of the Recreation Center, 601 Enzor Road. It is a universal playground for not only children of special needs, but all children of all abilities.

Soccer Fields

The Sportsplex soccer fields will allow play for three full-size soccer fields or any combination of small and large fields. Lights for the soccer fields were installed in 2002, and the soccer fields are used year round for games, practices, and also host the annual American Cancer Society "Relay For Life."

Franklin Fields

Located on Franklin Drive, Franklin Park consists of three baseball fields. Two fields are Dixie Youth, 200-foot fences, while the other field is 290 feet in length and plays host to all Dixie Boys league games.

Three batting cages are also located at the parks. A playground is located between the two upper fields and is available year-round to the public. Franklin Park fields are available for Troy Parks and Recreation youth team practices only, and must be reserved in advance by calling our main office at 566-4031.

Pike County Lake

Pike County Lake originally opened in 1951, but time took its toll on the dam and the property, and it closed in 2012 for repairs. In June of 2016, the lake reopened after a major renovation partnership between the City of Troy, and the State of Alabama Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.  The lake is now open six days a week, 12 months out of the year, closed on Wednesday and some holidays.
