John Fry Sport Park: Where The World Plays Ball

John Fry Sport Park: Where The World Plays Ball

John Fry Sport Park is named after Edmonton’s 21st mayor. John Wesley Fry sought the mayoral office eight times, winning each time. He served as mayor from 1937 to 1945, helping to refinance the city’s debt during the last days of the Great Depression, as well as leading the city through WWII. Prior to this, Fry served as an alderman on Edmonton City Council from 1932 to 1936.

Located in south Edmonton between 28 Avenue and 31 Avenue, John Fry Sport Park is a world-class, multi-use ball facility. It features five baseball diamonds, two rugby fields, trails for pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchairs, skateboards, and in-line skaters, as well as multiple parking lots. The John Fry Sport Park Pavilion features a six-team change room facility with showers and washrooms, team meeting rooms, officials room, patio and concession areas.

The Park has hosted several national and international level sporting events, including the 2012 Canadian Little League Championships, and the 2012 Women’s Baseball World Cup. It is also the home of the Alberta Volleyball Association and the Leprechaun-Tiger Rugby Club. These clubs have preferential use of the site, but the general public can also book the fields on days they are not in use.
