Fields: 

 

The Oden Alreck Baseball and Soccer fields:

are located next to the recreation building. The baseball field has a backstop and bases. The soccer field has two goals with nets. These regulation-sized goals are not set at the regulation distance but can provide great recreation none-the-less.

 

Basketball Court: 

At the far end of the baseball field, along Alger Smith Road, this non-regulation outside court has two goals, asphalt topping and is lighted for evening play. Bring your own ball and have a game or just shoot some hoops.

 

Playground: 

The Peterson Park playground is located on the corner of Church Road and Third Ave. It offers picnic tables, swings, slides, and other updated playground equipment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tennis Court: 

The John Geist Tennis Court, just up Church Road from Peterson Park, is a regulation tennis court with an asphalt surface surrounded by a chain link enclosure. The court sports a wind screen for protection from the occasional nor’easter and is lit with metal halide lighting for evening play. We ask that the courts be used for tennis only. No bikes or skateboards allowed in order to maintain court's surface.

 

Ice Rink: 

Each winter by Christmas, weather permitting, we put in an ice rink next to the Recreation Building. The Recreation Building entrance serves as a warming house with benches where you can put on your skates (or borrow a pair at the center, various sizes available) and come in to warm up. Two moveable hockey goals allow for informal games on a portion of the ice.  The rink is open from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. Metal Halide lighting provides plenty of light to ward off the darkest of winter nights. Come join the community for winter fun on the ice!
