After being cleared of Quonset hut temporary housing for veterans returning from World War II, Veterans Field was developed as public ball fields in 1953. Vets Field is respectfully dedicated “In Memory of all who Served” and home to a number of organized youth athletic programs including, youth Baseball, Softball, and Parks & Recreation youth Football. In addition, Special School District 6 uses this park in the fall for soccer and in the spring for baseball. The park features four softball/baseball fields (one with lights), a batting cage, a large playground structure, and a restroom/concession building with adjacent picnic shelter. In September 2010, a Veterans Memorial Monument was installed and dedicated at the park titled, “Tribute to all Veterans” donated by local and regional Veterans organizations.
