The Historic 
Barnes North City Park

The land for the North Park was given to the Barnes Park Assoc. in October 1888 
by John Bookwalter, with the stipulation 
that it be used as a public park.

"The Commons" and the 
Historic King  Post Bridge

When Barnes was first established, the main part of the town was on the south side of the tracks along what is now called Oshkosh Street or as it was referred to as “The Commons”. 
Barnes Ballfield

Located on the Northwest end on the North City Park.

Thanks to a small group of volunteers, and their many, many hours of work, the ball field has received a complete makeover.  The improvements include a new score board, paint, fencing, field lights, and a complete overhaul of the concession and announcer stands.

Ball Tournaments and Community Games are now held regularly!
