Speedway Parks & Recreation serves the community by providing beautiful, well-maintained park facilities and a wide range of events to enhance the lives of citizens and visitors alike.

Speedway is home to two beautiful public parks that provide spaces to play and gather, facilities to rent, and baseball diamonds that serve as the home field of the Speedway Little League.

Meadowood Park is located on the north side of town, adjacent to Wheeler Elementary School. It is a rare example of a densely forested community park covering 12.7 acres of land with stands of tall trees providing welcome shade on a hot day. Every summer, the Ziegelmueller Pavilion plays host to the popular Speedway Summer Concerts. Meadowood Park features 2 playground spaces, an interactive climbing rock area, 3 shelter pavilions, sand volleyball courts, baseball/softball diamonds and a 0.75 mile walking trail.

Leonard Park is located on the south side of town, just behind Town Hall and St. Christopher's Church on 15th Street. This 14.5 acre community park has plenty of space to enjoy, from wide swaths of lawn to the interactive playground. Each spring, the Little League opening day kicks off a flurry of activity with a parade and back-to-back games. Leonard Park also plays host to the annual Relay for Life fundraiser each year. Leonard Park features tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, baseball/softball diamonds, playground area, and a 0.5 mile walking trail.

Speedway Parks & Recreation works hard to provide clean, safe, and fun gathering spaces while being mindful of the neighborhoods surrounding the parks.  All visitors to the parks must abide by the Speedway Parks Rules & Regulations while visiting.  These rules and regulations are set to ensure the safety of visitors and staff, maintain clean and beautiful grounds and facilities, protect the wildlife and plants, and provide enjoyment without breaching the peace of the surrounding neighborhood.
