ABOUT THE PARK

The old Colman School provides a backdrop to the carefully maintained Colman Playfield. The Children's PlayGarden is under construction south of the ADA accessible basketball court. With the bike trail running along the edge of the playfield, and picnic tables tucked in the shade across the trail, Colman playfield is an easy place to get to and a great place to exercise and relax.

Acreage: 2.8

HISTORY

The park was purchased in 1910, as a result of school and community demand. By 1915, the playground had been graded "for ballground" (and picnic) purposes.

(Edited from the files of Don Sherwood, 1916-1981, Park Historian.)
