INDIANAPOLIS (AP): A $35 million project will transform at parking lot at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis into an outdoor sports exhibit including a miniature golf course and two pedal cart racetracks.

Museum officials announced project details Wednesday for the 7.5-acre Riley Children’s Health Sports Legend Experience that will be built just north of the museum. They say they’re aiming to provide a new national model for fitness to help fight childhood obesity.

The exhibit will also have spaces for football, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey and tennis, with sponsors including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers.

Museum President Jeffrey Patchen says the goal is to encourage families to be active and have healthy habits.

Plans call for the exhibit to open in the spring of 2018.
