Bear Creek Sports Complex | 400 One Industrial Park Road
After several years in the making, the Town of Oneida’s Bear Creek Sports Complex was finally completed in 2009. The brand-new sports complex provides a nice accompaniment to Oneida City Park to propel Oneida’s parks and recreation facilities ahead of those in many comparable cities.
Regulation-size baseball and softball fields are featured at the Bear Creek complex, along with two soccer fields, ample paved parking, concession stands and restroom facilities.
The complex, managed by Todd Lay (423-215-9528) provides fields for Scott County’s Little League baseball and AYSO soccer leagues and enables Oneida to host youth-league tournaments.
The complex was built on land that had been strip-mined for coal, using mostly federal dollars. Today, lush, green sod covers land that was once considered useless, creating a beautiful ball park enjoyed by hundreds of children throughout the community.
