A robust, multi-use park and facility, McCaslin Park originally opened in 2002. In 2010, the park received a $3.5m redevelopment funded by both the 2010 referendum and OSLAD* Grant. Final renovations were completed in 2015. The park features four baseball diamonds in a hub formation, with artificial turf infields, lighting and bleachers. The ball fields serve adult and youth baseball and softball leagues and tournaments, a variety of youth camps and family special events. A concession stand with shaded seating is open during games. A paved trail encircles the ball fields and connects to neighboring trails, a large playground, splash pad and Bankshot basketball court. The park is also home to Coyote Crossing Mini Golf, open in the summer. The golf course has a rentable outdoor shelter and indoor room to host birthday parties, group outings and special events.
This is your community ballpark, and all participants should take pride in these fields and facility. Maintaining the turf infields and the whole complex is important to its continued use for many years. Share a copy of these rules with your players, parents and any spectators coming to McCaslin Park this upcoming season, and help to take care of your park.
The beauty and preservation of McCaslin Park starts with you!

A colorful splash pad keeps the kids cool. A foot button is pressed to turn on the water, which is dispensed from the ground, from a frog-like feature, and from tall flower-like dumping buckets. The splash pad is adjacent to a large dry playground, the Bankshot™ court, the large picnic shelter with permanent grill (available to rent) and the sand volleyball court.
Bankshot™ basketball is a challenging game of making baskets by “banking” shots off of tilted or irregularly shaped backboards. Grab your basketball and come out to try this colorful, trick-shot course!
