Pacific University's football, soccer, women's lacrosse and track and field programs are privleged to call home one of the top outdoor small college athletic facilities in the United States.
Hanson Stadium was completed in September 2007. The stadium is a component of the $11 million Lincoln Park Athletic Complex, a series of three first-class athletic facilities developed in a unique partnership between Pacific University and the City of Forest Grove.
Originally known as Lincoln Park Stadium, the facility was renamed Hanson Stadium in Summer 2014 in honors of the contributions to the Pacific athletics program of Rich & Joy Hanson. The couple provided the leadership gifts that allowed for the construction of the roof over the main grandstand and also contributed to other significant Pacific athletics initiatives.
For soccer, football and lacrosse players, the crown jewel of the facility is the synthetic surfaced playing field. The stadium is lit with four large light towers, allowing for evening practices and matches.
A true state-of-the-art surface, FieldTurf provides the look and feel of grass without the mud, water or daily maintenance of natural turf. The FieldTurf pitch brings Hanson Stadium on-line with many other top-ranked athletic facilities that use the surface, including Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Reser Stadium in Corvallis and over half of the stadiums in the NFL, including Qwest Field in Seattle. FieldTurf is also used by teams in the English and Scottish premier leagues.
For every Pacific student, their sports, fitness and recreational experience begins and ends at the Stoller Center, located on the north end of the Pacific campus.
Constructed in 1970, the Stoller Center is one of the largest small college athletic facilities in the Northwest with 95,000-square-foot of floor space on two levels. The PAC is home to all of Pacific's intercollegiate athletic teams, athletic offices and the department of exercise science.
Formerly known as the Pacific Athletic Center, the facility was renamed in October 2010 for Bill Stoller. A member of the University's Board of Trustees and a former Pacific men's basketball player, Mr. Stoller played a critical role in the fundraising for remodels to the athletic facility over the last decade and played a key role in the return of the Pacific football program.
A recent remodeling project brought the Stoller Center's activity spaces up-to-date with other facilities of its type and size in the area. The $3 million project, completed in September 2000, added a 5,000-square foot weight and fitness center, remodeled athletic department offices, proviuded for the construction of a wood gym floor and made the building more aestheically pleasing for general use.
The Stoller Center continues to be a popular place for special events, both athletic and non-athletic. Athletically, the Stoller Center is the annual host for the annual Mike Clock Open and Pacific Junior Open wrestling tournaments, numberous age-group volleyball tournaments and rhythmic gymnastics competitions. Non-athletic events held at the Stoller Center include graduations for Forest Grove and Banks high schools as well as Pacific's annual Music In May festival.
