Veterans Memorial Park in Sparta in planning stages

Staff Report

Veterans Memorial Park is a proposed park in Sparta between Veterans Memorial Highway (Sparta Parkway) and Duncan Street.

The 7.5-acre park plans for an open, multi-use space. About three acres will be used for seasonal sports such as soccer, football and baseball, as well as an American with Disabilities Act accessible, quarter-mile walking path surrounding the multi-use area.

Other planned features at the park will be a park pavilion, picnic shelters, concession area and restrooms, a nature-walk bridge, parking area, and fishing opportunities along the park’s stream edge. Future phases reserved areas for additions such as a playground and monument area honoring specific branches of service and/or wars.
