Packer Dome

The Packer Dome
The Dome will be closed on Saturday, April 27, 2024.


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. When walking with a rental, walkers are to yield to the renters needs. No equipment is allowed during these times. No strollers are allowed to be used in the dome.

Batting Cages

Batting cages are available for rental 7 days a week at a rate of $25/hour. Reservations are not required, but availability is limited based on what is being used at the time and what is on the schedule. Hours available are the same as the dome walking schedule. Slots can be reserved by contacting Brandon Bartness at 507-460-1927 or email at

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. To view the Field Schedule, click here. If interested in renting, contact Brandon Bartness at 507-460-1927 or email at
