New Sports Park Under Construction

The park at Spencer's Crossing is slated to open this fall.

Construction has begun on an 11.5-acre sports park in the Spencer's Crossing neighborhood of unincorporated Murrieta.

Highlights of the sports park, which is scheduled to open this fall, include two baseball fields, a soccer field, a basketball court, a children’s play area and a concession stand, according to a news release. All fields will be lighted.

Located just outside Murrieta city limits in what is known as the French Valley area, Spencer's Crossing is a master-planned community developed by Brookfield Residential (Los Angeles) LP, a member of Brookfield Residential Properties Inc. With its parks and trails, the community has been designed for those with an active lifestyle, the news release stated. 

“Our philosophy is to develop master-planned environments where neighbors become friends and children can play—and the sports park at Spencer’s Crossing will further bring the residents of Murrieta together,” said Dennis Chapman, vice president of Brookfield Residential.

“The beginning of construction on this exciting addition to the community marks an important milestone and its anticipated completion will generate a wonderful sense of progress and optimism for this master plan. The development of this park at Spencer’s Crossing is significant and terrific news for residents and prospective Spencer’s Crossing homebuyers alike.”

According to Brookfield Homes (the current developer of Spencer's Crossing), the private recreation center is slated to be build and completed in early 2013. I hope they are not lying! see: http://spencerscrossing.com/

It was promised last year to be completed NO LATER THEN DECEMBER 2012, so it looks like they delayed it again. We have been here almost 5 years and are still waiting..... The orginal developer was Lennar Homes. They lost most of the land for the community in foreclosure and bailed out on the project. They are now building homes in other areas.

And also we have been let down by the Murrieta Marketplace, by Regency Centers. This was suppose to be a major retail/commercial strip mall featuring Lowes, Super Target, Staples, as the anchor tenants, followed by McDonalds, Taco Bells and a Panda Express. We like to see this development come to fruition instead of driving down Winchester Road to Temecula's equivalent. We hope it wouldn't take 10 years to build... Coming in 2022?

My question is: when the developer say "...the residents of Spencer Crossing..." will have access to the "private" Rec Center, does this include the Countrywide community? Is this community considered part of Spencer Crossing. I don't see it listed in the list of communities on the sign.

Hey, my last post was completely incorrect. Sorry about that, I meant to say Country Road Community. Countrywide was my mortgage company several years back. :) My question is still the same. Will Country Road community members be considered part of the communities who be allowed to use the Rec Center under development? Our community is the only one not listed on the Spencer Crossing sign that lists communities. Not sure why. We appear to be a part of Spencer Crossing. Does anyone know the answer to my question?
