LOVES PARK — The Rockford Park District’s Skybox Restaurant & Sports Bar at Mercyhealth Sportscore Two, 8800 E. Riverside Blvd., will be under new management beginning this fall.

Nick Fosberg, who owns and operates Fozzy’s Bar & Grill, 6246 E. Riverside Blvd., has signed an agreement with the park district to manage what will be called Fozzy’s Skybox.

The restaurant is located inside the Mercyhealth Sportscore Two’s massive Indoor Sports Center, which features soccer fields and a golf practice center.

“What excites me is being able to do indoor golf events and charity events,” Fosberg said. “There’s also a huge patio that overlooks the soccer fields and they’re (park district) going to allow us to have bands or acoustic sets during soccer tournaments, so I see a lot of opportunity in the summertime to do outdoor events on the patio.”
