McCaslin Park

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.

Summer Splash Pad Fun

Hours:  11am-7pm (summer)
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

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!
