Total acreage of 11.28 acres, this parcel was purchased in 1928, from the trustees of the Speedway Glens. It was named for James Logan who served as Mayor of the City for four years and was a pioneer in the playground movement.
Located on the west side of the city, Logan Field has finalized the first phase of renovations with over $400,000 in improvements!
Phase I renovations included a newly constructed basketball court (May 2000) and re-orienting the Babe Ruth baseball field with new site amenities.
The Babe Ruth baseball field that has been constructed in Phase I is named for Marshall I. Silverman. Mr. Silverman is a lifelong resident of Worcester who has dedicated 32 years of his life to youth baseball. He was the coach of Jesse Burkett Little League for 5 years beginning in 1967. For the last 27 years he has been the coach and manager of the West Side Babe Ruth League. For 21 of the 27 years he has been the President of the league donating uncountable hours to the youth of Worcester.
Other projects complementing the Logan Field improvements include ISTEA bicycle trails, pedestrian paths that connect Logan Field with Coes Reservoir, Patches Pond, God's Acre, Cascades and Boynton Park, and Cider Mill Park and master planning for the Coes Knife site.
