Packers Titletown development nearly complete
If you haven’t been to Lambeau Field since last season, you’re in for some surprises this fall.
The first phase of the Packers new Titletown development is nearly complete, just days ahead of the Packers season opener.
Tuesday, Packers CEO Mark Murphy led a small group on a tour of the 40+ acre property.
“Things are really coming along very nicely,” said Murphy.
The development is highlighted by a new sledding hill, ice-skating rink, and full size football field. The Packers partnered with Nike to build the field, using recycled tennis shoes to create the layer below the artificial turf.
“It’s fairly unique, it’s a newer product from Nike called grind,” said Ed Policy. “There’s a lot of surprises to be discovered around Titletown.”
A new brewery, sports clinic, and luxury hotel are already in place and running. Now, the Packers are putting the finishing touches on the park space nearby.
“It’s very gratifying to see it go from paper, to shovels in the ground, to now actual physical structures,” he said.
The public will get its first look at the field and playground on September 15th, with the ice-skating rink and sledding hill set to open in November.
The Packers plan on charging a small fee to use the ice-skating rink and tubing hill, with a select day each week being free.
