The River Country Sports Commission today announced that the Armstrong and Bloss families have made a private donation to fund completion of phase one of the Three Rivers multi-sports complex. In recognition for their gift, the committee also announced that the park will open in August 2019 as Armstrong Park.

Patrick Armstrong, Chairman of the Board of Armstrong International said, “Our family has been the beneficiary of great community support throughout our century-plus history in the City of Three Rivers. The Armstrong and Bloss families are grateful that we could give back to the community that has given us so much.”

Three Rivers city manager, Joe Bippus said, “The City of Three Rivers is very humbled by the generosity of the Armstrong and Bloss families. This gift, along with many others, is fulfilling the vision of making Three Rivers a Community of Choice.” 

To-date, over $5.4 million has been raised in both public and private dollars to develop the multi-sports complex. What started out as a vision for the youth has grown into a place where all residents and guests will be able to do a variety of things in one spot. In addition to the athletic fields, Armstrong Park will have two pickleball courts, a 9-hole disc golf course, playground, a family pavilion, concessions building, and a walking trail. 

“This is a truly unique and remarkable project,” Armstrong said. “Not only will Armstrong Park provide a wide range of recreational opportunities for people of all ages, but it will serve as an economic catalyst for the City for generations to come.”

The project continues to gain momentum as donations are being made to support the Field of Dreams campaign. A maintenance fund has been established to support the park and the River Country Sports Commission has entered into an agreement with the city for overseeing the operations of the park during the playable seasons. Additional fundraising will continue and corporate sponsorships are still needed to complete the vision for the sports complex.

Letter from Matthew J. Fetter, 

Metal Technologies President/CEO 


We were both very impressed by the site development, the presentation detail, and the professional way the project has been developed including the wide range of community engagement.  It is clear there has been significant planning and thought put into this very important investment for the Three Rivers' community which will be an important asset for many generations to come.  

Due to the hard work, dedication and commitment of MTI's 1,200 team members, one of our core values is investing back in the communities in which we operate.  We do this in several ways including training, development, capital investment, volunteering and various charitable projects.  Since 1999, the Three Rivers location has been an integral part of Metal Technologies and we want to support a strong community for our 170 local team members.  As a result, we are excited about the opportunity to support the Three Rivers Sports Complex....we are hopeful that our donation will provide a better community and promote the completion of the park.
