Al Lease Park

Named after Al Lease, who was involved with Kent Youth Baseball, this 31-acre park expanded in 1990 on the west-side of Kent, off of Silver Meadow Blvd.

Extensive landscaping gives this park a mature appearance. One of the most attractive passive recreation areas is a wooden walkway leading through a wetlands area to a large gazebo. Quiet observers can glimpse deer and pheasants that live in the area.

Of course, the parks are not just for passive recreation. A four-acre lake has been stocked with shell cracker, large-mouth bass, and channel catfish, so fishing enthusiasts of all ages can spend afternoons fishing from the banks. 

There are four picnic shelters in the park, each equipped with a grill. The shelters are available for rental (find more information below), otherwise are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Al Lease Park has a regulation soccer field, a baseball field with a grass infield, a basketball court, a volleyball court, and two playground areas. During the early 2000’s, permanent restroom facilities and an underground field irrigation system were installed, a one-mile Hike & Bike loop was added around the park, and a 20-car parking lot was developed off of Admore Drive.
