Centennial Park History & Project Information:
The park was developed as a community park in the mid-1970’s.
Centennial Park Ball Fields-
Construction of the original baseball/softball complex was accomplished using volunteer labor and donations from the Loveland Baseball Association as well as the City of Loveland, and other community groups. The original five fields have served as host to thousands of Loveland’s youth over the years.
The Centennial Park ball field renovation project completed in 2005, includes improvements on Field #4 and Field #5, new backstops and dugouts on several fields, a new core building with concessions, and an elevated core area for improved spectator viewing, refurbished bleachers and new seating areas, turf and irrigation replacement, landscaping and fencing improvements, and a new entryway.
Design services were provided by EDAW, Inc. of Fort Collins, with construction management/general contractor services provided by Sinnett Builders of Fort Collins.
The Centennial renovation project was completed, and the Grand Opening happened on May 6th, 2005.
