Jamestown ParkHistorically, Jamestown Park and Golf Course has been an extremely busy public park facility servicing the community, and area youth, offering soccer, baseball, golf, walking trails and picnic shelters.
Jamestown Park’s 50,000 annual visitors additionally provide commerce to Jamestown businesses and restaurants. The Park is a vital part of the community and enhancement of its facilities will afford us the opportunity to continue to provide important recreational opportunities to its citizens.
Area youth have utilized our complex to hone athletic skills that have played a strong role in them securing athletic scholarships to universities nationwide in golf, baseball, and soccer. Civic groups, church groups, and many charities continue to utilize our facilities to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in fundraising efforts that benefit many organizations and individuals alike.
The Town of Jamestown conducted a Golf Course Funding Survey in 2009-2010, where 65-70% of respondents supported improving and enhancing Park facilities. The survey’s intent was to help the Town and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee (PRAC) determine what park facilities were in need of improvement and to gauge the level of support town residents had for such a project. Of the responses, approximately 65-70% of respondents was supportive of the Town improving and enhancing Park facilities, specifically, tees, greens, and baseball field complex.
