History


The park was named on July 24, 1967 in honor of Ronald L. Snowden (November 4, 1953 - August 30, 1964), a young man who devoted his short life to recreational activities in the city, particularly with youth baseball, and exemplified the highest standard of citizenship and sportsmanship.

The park was completely refurbished in 2016 and a ribbon cutting was held to re-open the park.  Photos and details about the park's rehabilitation can be found at this link.
