The Troy Sportsplex opened in the spring of 1991 and continues to grow in size and popularity. The Sportsplex is located on the Enzor Road, off Highway 167 in Troy. Phase I included four softball fields with a centralized press box. Youth and adult softball leagues play regular season and tournament games at the Sportsplex, while baseball tournaments have also been played on the 285-foot fields. In 1995, the Sportsplex was the host of the Dixie Boys World Series. The prestigious tournament returned again in 1998. All fields are available for practices, but must be reserved in advance by calling our main office. In addition to the ballparks, the open space of the Sportsplex is very popular for a variety of outdoor recreation.
Phase II of the Sportsplex opened in 1996, with four new fields and another state-of the-art press box. Two fields measure 200 feet in distance while the other two are 285 feet. Eight fully-automated batting cages also opened in 1996, offering a variety of baseball pitching speeds, as well as slow pitch and fast pitch softball.
Land for Phase III was later purchased adjacent to the Sportsplex, totaling approximately 70 acres. A 1.1 paved walking trail opened in the summer of 2010, with plans to expand the length of the trail.

Johnson Center for the Arts
The Johnson Center for the Arts is housed in one of Troy, Alabama’s, historic treasures, a classical-revival style post office, circa 1910, located just off the square in downtown Troy.
The government facility remained in service until 1980, but it sat empty until 2000. That same year, the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center Board of Directors was formed. Fearing the structure’s impending demolition, the Board purchased the handsome structure in order to preserve it and create the only cultural arts center in Pike County.
Founded as a 501 3(c) corporation to advance the growth and knowledge of art and to provide county wide art education opportunities such as art exhibits that would benefit the citizens of Troy, Pike county and the surrounding counties, the Johnson Center for the Arts accommodates an audience of over 400 and is, also, home to seven galleries including the 1400 square foot, two-story main gallery.
Admission is free to the general public; however, the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center is dependent on contributions and sponsorships in order to maintain a state-of-the-art cultural arts facility and provide quality educational programming.
The Cultural Arts Studio

The Studio may be rented by organizations, individuals or groups for private and public events. The raw space can easily be converted for a wedding reception, conference, meeting space or dinner program.
