The New 'Union Stadium' corner of Market and Farwell in Mead (Sept. 2020)

Union Stadium is named after the Union School District that included the property where the sports arena sits. Mead School District absorbed the area when Union went under. Due for completion by the end of September, it includes a $24 million high school stadium that will be the best in the region – at least until Spokane Public Schools completes its own stadium in the fall of 2022.

The stadium includes a 7,200-square-foot locker room building. At the other end is a 5,600-square-foot concessions and restroom building.

Across the parking lot is a performing arts building that will also provide a facility for the drill teams, color guard and award-winning marching bands, which until now were often forced to practice in an available parking lot.

You may recognize these 4 tiles.  They were part of the 1950's addition to our High School and have been saved and reinstalled in the gymnastic center being constructed on our high school site.

"Union Stadium" is the name of the stadium and athletic field being built on the site of our high school athletic field (June 2020)

New Mead elementary school is being built on property behind what was our high school (June 2020)
