Baseball season is in full swing, no pun intended, and the three baseball fields at Rotary Park in Nixa (701 N. Taylor Way, Nixa) are the perfect spot to play a few innings. These fields have been there since the creation of the park in the 1950s. As a result of its age, many parents and grandparents now have the chance to watch their children learn on the same fields they played on while growing up.
The park has kept its main elements and foundation as it has grown and been updated. For those not interested in baseball, the park houses many other activities including tennis courts, a basketball court, a sand volleyball court, playgrounds and a pavilion. “It’s a very busy park with 10 acres that offer something for everyone, no matter what you’re looking to do,” says Matt Crouse, Nixa director of parks and recreation. Because of its compact size, you can easily multitask by pushing one child on the swings at the playground and still being able to watch your other child play baseball.
