History

Kiwanis Park, located at 2525 Noble Road, was deeded in 1955 and constructed shortly thereafter. The 2,400 square foot neighborhood center houses a meeting room, warming kitchen, restrooms, offices, and storage. Other park amenities include a small playground, two regulation basketball courts, a comfort station/shelter combination, baseball field, and two multi-purpose fields. The total park site is 29.5 acres and includes access to the Crabtree Greenway. A portion of the park lies in the floodplain of Crabtree Creek, and is bounded by Joyner Elementary School and a mix of residential housing types.
