Marshall Park

The new artificial surface baseball and softball fields at Marshall Park have drawn several tournaments to Ontario this summer, driving the economy.

ONTARIO — The way Ontario Youth Sports Director Kenn Spencer sees it, Marshall Park isn’t just the town’s crown jewel. The rolling 122-acre expanse nestled between Rock Road and Shelby-Ontario Road is an agent of economic change.

Marshall Park is in the midst of a multi-phase facelift. This year’s upgrades included the installation of artificial surface and state-of-the-art lighting at the four-field baseball and softball complex located on Dunlap Drive. Construction of a playground and splash pad at the corner of Milligan Road and Cal Miller Lane is in the works, too.
