FREEPORT — The completion of several athletic fields off Hunter Road will be celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Friday.

The fields are part of a $3.3 million multi-use complex that will include trails for running, biking and cross-country skiing and a recreational lodge.

Developed by Freeport Fields and Trails, a coalition of local residents and business owners, the project is being paid for with $2.3 million in surplus town funds and $500,000 from L.L.Bean.

Four multi-use fields and three baseball/softball fields have been sodded and fitted with goal posts, where appropriate, said Sande Updegraph, executive director of the Freeport Economic Development Corp.

Next spring, the fields will be striped and construction will begin on the trails, she said.

The ceremony will be held at the Hunter Road entrance.
