About the Park

As a young teenager, Jake Mazur loved sports and bass fishing. In 1994, Jake and his father, a former City Council member, were fishing on Lake Fork when a storm unexpectedly arose. Before returning to shore, Jake was struck and killed by lightning. Following this unfortunate accident, Mayor Harold Bowden and the City Council obtained 8.5 acres and named the park "Jake's Place" to honor and remember Jake.


Jake's Place amenities include:

  • Baseball fields (2)
  • Basketball court
  • Duane Olson Pavilion
  • Grills
  • Picnic benches
  • Playground equipment
  • Soccer field

Use of the baseball and soccer fields is by reservation only. Due to the size of the fields, use of the baseball fields is also restricted to youth (12 years old and younger) play only.
