Tom Brown Park
Hours of Operation: Sunrise to Sunset
Located in the eastern part of Tallahassee, just east of Capital Circle SE between Mahan Drive and Apalachee Parkway, sits a huge park with everything you could want to do in it. This is the City of Tallahassee's premier place to play, with numerous baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, and wide open spaces
Tom Brown Park also hosts many of Tallahassee's special events, including the 4th of July Fireworks Show. Large special events are held here periodically, so you will be sure to frequent this park quite a lot.
The park was dedicated on January 30, 1977 and named after Thomas Irvin Brown, Jr., a coach for Leon High School (1944-1946). He was also a coach for the Babe Ruth League for 20 years and a Leon County Commissioner for 14 years. His time, efforts and energies touched the lives of many of our leading young citizens. Tom Brown played the game of sports by giving it his all!
Youth Sports Camp: June 16 - 20
For the first time ever, the athletics division is hosting a youth sports camp this summer. If you enjoy the youth team sports throughout the year, you will enjoy this one week camp. Every day, a new sport (baseball, softball, flag and tackle football, volleyball, basketball, soccer, tennis, ultimate Frisbee, disc golf) will be highlighted and campers will learn the fundamentals of the sport and playing against others while meeting new friends along the way. There will also be a guided walking tour from Tom Brown Park to Lake Lafayette on Cadillac Trail and a fun aquatic bounce house to beat the summer heat!
There are three age groups (5-7, 8-10 and 11-13) and space is limited as we can take only the first 25 registrations per age group. The camp will be at Tom Brown Park and the cost is $125. Each camper will receive a t-shirt and a take-home disc to play disc golf.
For more information, download the registration packet (PDF) or contact the camp directors: Brian Smatt - 891-3837 and Luca Williams - 891-3825.
