Middle Creek and Optimist Club Fields: Central location for organized sports

October 13, 2010

Middle Creek field

Still in New Hanover Township, if you head north on Route 663, in the vicinity of Swamp Pike, you get a pretty good reminder that the area surrounding the borough of Pottstown is still very rural.

Take a left onto Dotterer Road (west) to get to the Middle Creek and Optimist Club Athletic Fields. Just behind the Boyertown Area YMCA building, turn right down the gravel road, and you will first encounter the Middle Creek Athletic Fields. The soccer field there is used by the Boyertown Soccer Club, and the baseball field by Pine Forge’s Athletic Association. These fields are conveniently located and well maintained with ample room for parking and spectators.

Just a bit further down the road and adjacent to the new housing developments, which are also a common sight in this popular township, are the Optimist Club Fields and the recently re-named Anthony “Tony” Gambone Athletic Complex in the Windlestrae development. Big plans are in the works with a fundraising campaign by the Optimist Club Wrestling and Youth Associations to expand offerings at this site.
