Sports facility ‘The Turf’ inflating in Burlington

BURLINGTON, Iowa -- A new indoor sports facility is taking shape.

Crews started inflating "The Turf" on Friday, December 7, essentially blowing it up like a bubble.  The Hawk-Eye newspaper captured video of its initial stages.

The facility is located across from the Rec-Plex.  It includes eight soccer fields, two softball fields, batting and pitching cages.

"The Turf" was expected to open in January of 2019.
