The day has finally come! We started moving dirt and preparing the ground for the 8-10 month process of building the sports complex.

In 1948 Newell A. and Katherine M. Barney turned the desert land of Queen Creek, Az into Barney Farms. For the past 60 years they, their children, grand children, and great grand children, have enjoyed the life the farm has provided. As a memory of this legacy which has been built, the Barney Family is building the Barney Family Sports Complex. After the farm has gone the sports complex will be here to remind everyone what Newell and Katherine have done for the town of Queen Creek and especially their family.
