Sports Park History
If you are looking to play a local game of baseball or a friendly game of kickball, the Cascade Sports Park is the place to be. Sporting events are encouraged on the two diamonds! This is also the home of the Rambler’s Football team, in the fall come out to support our local high school football team. The origin of the Cascade Sports Park dates back to January 25, 1967, when the City of Cascade purchased the property from Frank D. Callender. The first baseball diamond was constructed on the site in the spring of 1979. The effort, spearheaded by Greg Spangenberg, relied almost entirely on materials donated by local businesses and a volunteer work force. At the time, local businesses and churches sponsored six to eight softball teams. On April 12,1982, the Mayor and Council of the City of Cascade dedicated a portion of the property as a site for a two-diamond-softball facility to promote and encourage recreational activities for the health and well-being of the citizens of the City of Cascade, their visitors, and guests. On November 12, 2013, the Cascade City Council appointed a Planning Committee to develop a Master Plan for the Cascade Sports Park. On December 9, 2013, the City Council adopted 10 goals to be incorporated into the Cascade Sports Park Master Plan. The intent was to ensure that all activities and facilities considered by the Planning Committee for inclusion in the Cascade Sports Park Master Plan is consistent with City Official’s expectations.
