New home for Williamsville East's sports teams opens Friday

The new home for Williamsville East High School athletics includes about 260,000 square feet of artificial turf for soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, baseball, softball and football.

A grand opening ceremony, including a ribbon-cutting and brief remarks from school officials, begins at 6 p.m. Friday at the school at 151 Paradise Road, Amherst.

Overflow parking will be available at Transit Middle School, 8730 Transit Road, Amherst.

Permanent bleachers, three new scoreboards, field lighting, a new concession stand and restrooms have been installed. New tennis courts are also part of the new sports complex.

In May 2015, district voters approved a $22.4 million project to install multi-use synthetic turf athletic complexes at each of Williamsville's three high schools.
