ATHLETIC FIELD OPEN TO ALL RESIDENTS

Geneseo Park District added two new amenities to the Athletic Field! Check out the permanent bags court and ping pong table available to the community to play anytime dawn to dusk for FREE!

Bring your own paddles and ping pong balls to play on the concrete table. If you don't have bags, don't worry, borrow a set from The Center (just bring an ID to exchange).

The Athletic Field became part of the Geneseo Park District on June 1, 2000. For many, the old athletic field was a quick jog down from the junior high under the direction of Elmer Reedy and/or JoAnne Gernant during P.E. class. Many Geneseo football alumni vividly remember moments from their legendary youth football days on the athletic field gridiron

The Athletic Field is located on East North Street (1 block west of Community Center). The Geneseo Park District runs youth sports programs such as flag football, tennis, and golf at the Athletic Field. The Athletic Field currently serves as the host to Geneseo Youth Football, Geneseo Middle School (GMS) 8th-grade football, and Geneseo High School (GHS) Freshman-Sophomore tennis.

The Athletic Field is open to all residents for a variety of uses such as; basketball, tennis, pickleball, running/walking on the newly resurfaced track or just lounging on the grass
