Located in the downtown area in one of the older neighborhoods, Recreation park is the oldest community park with large mature trees and other significant landscaping.

The park has expanded in recent years with acquisition of adjacent properties. This park experiences significant usage by residents from all areas of the community because it is the location of the District's premier baseball diamond and the annual Frontier Day's Festival. Recreation Park is the Park District's oldest community center, built in 1937 as a WPA project. Many people enjoy the gymnasium with its wooden floor. Recreation's Olympic-sized pool, the Park District's oldest pool, was remodeled in 1988. The inter path loop from Douglas St. passed the building and around the ball field is .50 mile. The map shows this distance in yellow. The perimeter path which includes the public sidewalk around Miner, Belmont, Northwest Hwy. and Douglas is .64 mile. The map shows this distance in red.
