Experience the vibrant community spirit at Harmon Park, conveniently situated just one block north of McMorrow Fields. Serving as the hub for South St. Paul youth and high school Girl's Fastpitch Softball, this neighborhood park offers a unique blend of recreational amenities. Harmon Park proudly stands as part of a network of parks across Minnesota, including Pipestone, West St. Paul, and Worthington, all benefiting from the Harmon Foundation Playgrounds in America program.
Established by William E. Harmon, a visionary real estate agent originally from Ohio, the Foundation played a pivotal role in providing financial support for the development of approximately 120 to 150 parks and recreational facilities nationwide. Harmon believed in the enduring value of playgrounds, stating, "A playground now will be a playground forever, for land is the one thing that does not perish. And children will play!"
Harmon Park is not just about softball—it's a multifaceted recreational haven. In addition to the premier Girl's Fastpitch Softball facility, the park features a playground, tennis courts, a paved and boarded hockey rink, and expansive open areas perfect for passive recreation and picnics. Discover the legacy of William E. Harmon and the joy of play at Harmon Park, where community, sports, and leisure converge seamlessly.
