Parks Field was named after C.E. Parks, who was a Trustee of King and a generous donor during World War II. Continuing with the work of his sons, John G Parks and Erskine Parks, Jr. and his grandsons, George Parks, his famy has dedicated itself to serving King University, its faculty, staff and students.
Parks Field sits on the west side of campus between the baseball field and the tennis courts. The fields, an 80 x 120 yard game field and practice area below and behind the softball field, are hybrid Bermuda grass and boast total field irrigation with an elaborate drainage system.
