Community Park being 45.8 acres is typically designed for the sports person. This park is the home to St Matthews Baseball and Softball League and as a result features numerous fenced league quality ball fields.
Most fields are not open to the public for play, however, the T-Ball field located next to the children’s play area, and several batting cages throughout the park are open daily for public use from spring through fall each year, except during scheduled league play.
Additional features in Community Park include basketball and tennis courts, a children’s play area with equipment, grills, picnic tables, a pavilion, water fountains and handicap accessible restrooms. Free parking available.
In the northeast corner of the park is a sizable wooded area with asphalt walking paths, and inviting bench and swing seating. The presence of the natural stream running along the rear portion of the park, spanned by wooden foot bridges, make this a great place to take a relaxing stroll or just commune with nature.
Many types of wildlife have been spotted throughout this area, including deer, fox, turkey, rabbits, and others. Community Park is open to the public from dawn to dusk as it is with all City of St Matthews parks.
Stadium to replace Voll Field
A proposal has been approved by the City of St. Matthews Council to allow Trinity High School Foundation, Inc. (THSF) and St. Matthews Little League to cooperatively build and maintain a modern high school baseball sports stadium at the St. Matthews Community Center Park. This project includes demolition, site work and construction of the project which will be the sole responsibility of THSF including construction management and obtaining any required permits and plan approvals.
The City of St. Matthews retains ownership of the stadium and reserved in its lease agreement to THSF the right to open the facility to City use, when not being occupied by Trinity High School or the St. Matthews Little League. The project will be completed in spring 2019.
Community Park is located off of Ten Pin Lane, just off of Shelbyville Road
