History:Kreager Park was formerly known as the Seyfert Farm property (an old potato farm) which was purchased with Land & Water Conservation fund monies in 1967 and included 110 acres of land. An additional 62 acres were acquired in 1992 in an exchange with Allen County for land from Johnny Appleseed Park. At that time the park was known as Maumee Park.
A $5 million dollar donation from Gale Kreager transformed the former potato farm into a park complete with lighted ball diamonds, soccer fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, restrooms and an open air pavilion. The name of the park was then changed to Kreager Park in 1994.
Then later, in 1997, an additional 51 acre farm field south of North River Road was donated to the Parks & Recreation Department by Mr. Thomas and Debra Meyer which brought the acreage up to just over 218 acres.
On June 10, 2011 Taylor's Dream:Boundless Playground had its grand opening.
Today Kreager Park provides a wide variety of recreational amenities. Check out the information below.
