Complex overhaul for North Tonawnada sporting facility

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — He’ll amplify his investments by opening a second location for Greater Buffalo Physical Therapy, with his other location operating out of Amherst for decades. 

Barbara Morse, Sportsplex’s general manager, who has worked at the complex since the late 1990s, said the organization will also try to bridge a gap with the North Tonawanda School District, which abuts the facility on Meadow Drive, and has also reached out to city hall. 

“We want to be more community-oriented,” she said. “For people to know that we’re here to stay and moving forward.” 

Robinson said he has more plans for the future as well. An overgrown field in front of Sportsplex that once served as an outdoor tennis court will likely be turned into a soccer field with lighting. He’s also looking to install a snack bar and obtain a liquor license for events and sports enthusiasts, while he will add personal trainers to his soon-to-open physical therapy office. 

“We’re looking at this from the community’s perspective,” he said. “We’re bringing this back to life and hopefully sparking interest again from the people who used to come here as they were growing up.”
