Where Champions Play

Champions Park is located along Interstate 70 in Springfield between Dayton and Columbus and is home to the historic Clark County Fairgrounds – a destination serving as one of the region’s most active tourism attractions. Champions Park is home to the annual Clark County Fair, as well as major antique shows, car shows, equestrian competitions and national boat racing championships. The development is targeted for a collection of hospitality, restaurant and other retail uses to support the demand generated by tourism activities through a joint venture between the Clark County Land Bank and Dillin Corp. The planned development includes a new Gateway Entry project, as well as a SpringHill Suites Hotel. The project is expected to break ground in 2022.
