CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) Ground has been broken for a sports complex being built in West Virginia.

Kanawha (kun-NAW') County Commissioner Ben Salango said in a news release that construction has begun and the Shawnee Park Multi-Sport Complex should be open in the summer. The commission recently awarded a $10.2 million construction contract.

The 127-acre (51-hectare) complex will be located at Shawnee Park in Institute, outside Charleston. Planned are six collegiate-size turf soccer and lacrosse fields, four collegiate-size turf baseball and softball fields and several grass practice fields. Also planned are updates to the basketball courts, renovations to the outdoor swimming pool and construction of a new community building with additional parking.

A Youth Development Center will provide local children with after-school access and other activities, such as crafts, visual arts, music and computer coding.
