Menifee in Pictures: Audie Murphy Sports Park Taking Shape

Many of the homes are occupied and hundreds more are being built in the Audie Murphy Ranch development on Newport Road west of Murrieta Road. One of the most eagerly anticipated amenities is the complex's sports park, which is scheduled to open this fall.

Workers have erected the light poles and part of the backstop for the baseball field and are grading areas for a soccer field, skate park, basketball courts and a playground. Residents of that community also will have use of a private recreation center with a swimming pool and spa.

Oh, and by the way, those of you who guessed that Thursday's "Menifee in Pictures" site was the park at Hidden Meadows were correct!

  1. Will the general public have use of the basketball court, soccer field, skate park and baseball field? Or is this just for the owners of the Audie Murphy Ranch homes?

  2. It will be a open community park
