DESCRIPTION

Surrounded by stands of timber, Lake Stevens Community Park is a family-friendly park with plenty of amenities. With four athletic fields, three ball fields (two baseball and one softball), two half sport courts, a playground, walking paths, a restroom, and plenty of parking (279 stalls) it is a great park for sports teams and events. 


HISTORY

See our land acknowledgment here.  The land was formerly an old homestead and timber harvesting site. Property for the park was purchased from Roesler Timber Company in 1996, with the assistance of the Lake Stevens Junior Athletic  Association (LSJAA). The park was master planned with community involvement in 1998.

Gary Cease Memorial Ballfields

Gary Cease’s name is synonymous with most sporting programs in Lake Stevens over the past two decades. Cease lost his battle with cancer on November 11, 2008, leaving a legacy of service and love of sports. Cease’s involvement in the Little League sporting community in Lake Stevens began as a coach for his son Caleb’s Little League. Soon he was immersed in the Lake Stevens Junior Athletic Association and coaching football, baseball, and wrestling. While serving as President of the LSJAA, Cease made sure no child was left out because of financial burdens, personally paying for their league fees or getting them waived. His goal was to have every child play if the child wanted the opportunity. He picked up those who were less fortunate or whose parents were too busy to get them to practice. Gary told his close friends that “the best times I spent in my life were on the fields I coached...mentoring kids is my most memorable accomplishment.” Cease was also a wrestling referee for 22 years for the Snohomish County Wrestling Association, served as the Assigning Secretary for eight of those years, and helped start the Lake Stevens Kids Wrestling program. Gary’s youth program helped produce state champions Danny Kleven, Mike Bundy, Burke Barnes, and Ty Human for the high school program. Gary’s legacy of commitment will live on through all the kids he helped during his life. He has set a standard for what it means to be part of a community.
