It is almost time to start summer youth baseball.
Games will be played on the park diamond, south of the soccer field. We
are in the process of purchasing bleachers, but it would be a good idea
to take a lawn chair. Click here for the baseball schedule or look in "Forms, Flyers & Schedules".
Wifi is now available in the park! You can now check your email while attending youth practices and games!
accomplishing a lot at the Fair Grove District Parks, managing our
funds to get the best bang with limited bucks. Special thanks go
to Carl Buckner for overseeing construction of the new concession stand
by the soccer and baseball fields. It has bathrooms, pop machine,
large storage area, and yummy snacks.
Soccer is now a FGHS sport, with a boys' team making their debut in 2011
and a girls' team fielded in 2012. The FGHS girls finished their
home stand with a 3-1 victory over Parkview on May 9th.

Capital improvements planned at the park include paving of the gravel
trails in the fall, 2013. We now have about 1/3 mile of paved
trail, but will add about another mile of paving. Further paving
of parking lots will depend on finances. We also plan to add picnic
tables tables and benches in the near future.
