The Mandan Park District officially broke ground on the Starion Sports Complex April 20.
The new complex will be located at 111 Old Red Trail NE.
It will be approximately 84,000 square feet and it will be home to two new ice hockey rinks, a gymnastics facility and a football and track field.
"This is a great feeling. The day that we, that the sales tax got approved this is a day that I've been looking for. Where we can start moving dirt and get the community for a such a big project for the city of Mandan," said Mandan Park Board President Jason Arenz.
The board says the facility should be open fall of 2017.
