The northeast corner of Palm Avenue and Pacific Street will soon been the site of daily soccer games, with children and adults playing on new fields.
Blanca Magana and her father Gilberto Vivar are building California Indoor Soccer 2 on the long vacant property.
“We love the sport and grew up playing, and we like to see kids happy and playing,” said Magana of the venture to promote soccer in the area.
She and her father also own an indoor soccer club in San Bernardino.
The new club will offer soccer matches for players ages four and up on six fields. Games will be played in the afternoons during the week and in the mornings on weekends.
According to Magana, there is no plan to remove the historic Highland train station platform at the southwest corner of the property. It may be used as an information desk platform.
