This 40-acre specialized park has four baseball fields, a concession stand, a multi-purpose field, a passive play area, picnic facilities, restrooms and parking.

The Sarasota Youth Baseball Babe Ruth League for ages 13-15 calls this park home.

The first recreational facility developed on this site was a soccer field that was used by the Chicago Mustangs professional soccer team. This field was constructed in the mid 1960s and was replaced by a Babe Ruth League baseball field several years later.

The northern portion of the site was leased to the Boys Clubs of Sarasota County in 1968 (now the Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota County).

The southern portion of the site was leased to the State of Florida Division of Motor Vehicles for a period of 50 years in 1973.
