This mural is a part of the Logan, Utah Art in the Park program. It celebrates local youth soccer players who utilize the field where the mural lives surrounded by wildflowers of the region. The mural covers all four walls of the concessions building in the center of the park. The soccer teams represented include Avalanche, Magic United, Northern Utah United, Real Nibley, and Sport Logan. The soccer balls reference the goals used in the ancient Mesoamerican ball game known as Xcaret or Pok Ta Pok to tie the game back to its origins. The background is an abstraction of the surrounding mountain ranges and the soccer field; the silhouettes mimic the outlines of the surrounding Wellsville and Bear River ranges.
