Memorial Park is a recently re-developed site that, with the acquisition of a previously privately owned site (the Kerr Oil property), the incorporation of the BLM leased railroad easement and a land exchange with Ignite CDA is now an eleven acre park. It is separated from City Park by pedestrian friendly Ft. Ground Drive which is closed to vehicle traffic from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. In addition to the historic grandstands for Memorial Field that are being refurbished, the park contains a privately owned building housing the carousel which is operated seasonally by a non-profit group. Other amenities include a large shared use parking lot, a playground, pickle ball courts, a Futsal court, a new restroom/gazebo building and an extensive skate park. The first phase of a new commuter trail runs through the park parallel to Northwest Boulevard.
Memorial Park now has a picnic shelter that can be used on a first come, first serve basis. No reservations are needed or taken.
