Blithewood Park offers numerous sporting options to the sports fans of the family. Whether you like to play tennis, basketball or baseball, you'll be able to perfect your game in this beautiful park.
When you're tired from playing at the playground or need a break from your game on one of the courts, you'll find many shady and cool spots to unwind. One of the most notable spots is the white gazebo that was dedicated in 1994. A portion of the inscribed plaque reads, "To Life, To Love, To Song. Lovingly dedicated by family and friends to the memory of Christine Perry O'Mara."
