Packer Dome

Wescott Field
The Packer Dome
The Packer Dome is now inflated, but work is still being done to be ready for the season. Opening Date is TBD, but will be announced on this page and the Facebook Page soon.

Is winter getting you down? Come check out the Packer Dome, where the temperature is around 55 degrees and the turf is always green (and red!)

The Packer Dome is an enclosed area that covers the turf of Art Hass Stadium at the Wescott Sports Complex. Built-in amenities include a walking/running track, batting cages, and an artificial turf field.

Walking/Running Track

The walking/running track is open to all at no cost 7 days a week. Masking is recommended, but not required at this time. A physical sign-up is required, which can be found in the building next to the dome. When walking with a rental, walkers are to yield to the renters needs. No equipment is allowed during these times.

Turf Field

The turf field is the size of a football field and can be split in halves or left whole depending on the needs of the event. Some previous uses of the field have included soccer games, indoor softball games, and football practices, but we are happy to work with you to try and fit your event into the space. There is variable pricing to rent the space, depending on multiple factors. Please see Rental Procedures to find what the rate would be for your event. If interested in renting, contact Alex Pitzen at 507-460-1927 or email at
