Leaders Celebrate Opening of City Sports Complex at Seymour Johnson AFB

Leaders from the Air Force and Goldsboro, N.C., held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday for a 62-acre sports complex located on Seymour Johnson AFB and leased to the city under a 20-year agreement. Under the initiative, spearheaded under the Air Force Community Partnership program, Goldsboro paid $6 million to build two turf and six grass multipurpose fields, a fieldhouse and other amenities. In turn, the city is providing the base with access and use of the site, and funding a 2,500-square-foot addition to Seymour Johnson’s main fitness center. The complex includes s static display of the last operational F-4E Phantom to serve at the installation. The city plans to add other features, including a playground, covered picnic shelters and a splash pad, reports the Goldsboro News-Argus. The R.A. Bryan Foundation secured naming rights to the complex for 15 years for $300,000.
