One of the best kept secrets in North York, a multiuse park in that has facilities for both casual and serious baseball players and tennis players alike!
This 6.8 hectare park features five ball diamonds and a club house. Four of the diamonds have lights for nighttime play. In 2014, ball diamond number three, was named the Tom and Pat Lawson Memorial Field in recognition of the time and energy Mr. and Mrs. Lawson dedicated to the organization of amateur baseball.
