Lost Nation Sports Park was created and began operations in 1998. A team headed by Patrick Parker (Former Chairman & CEO of Parker Hannifin) and Mike Srsen (Former Treasurer of the Cleveland Browns) converted a large 80,000’ aircraft repair facility into northeast Ohio’s most unique, multi-faceted, family-oriented sports and recreation facility. The original indoor complex was further enhanced in 2002 with the opening of a natural grass, 13-acre outdoor soccer field complex, featuring up to nine (9) outdoor soccer fields. This unique combination of 1st-class indoor sports facilities & outdoor soccer fields has given LNSP national stature as a premier year-round soccer facility.
