Because we invented awesome.

Each playing field has its own electric scoreboard and fully automatic irrigation. The 300-foot fields are also adaptable to Little League and youth baseball.

About Wallace Marine Park

In 1956, Paul Black Wallace left 24 acres of prime riverfront land to the residents of Salem. Today, Wallace Marine Park is a beautiful 68 acres tucked along the west bank of the Willamette River, and the Wallace Marine Park Softball Complex is its spectacular centerpiece. Other modern park amenities include a netted playground, a boat ramp, and soccer fields.

A typical day at the park will include the chance to see an osprey soar with a fish in its talons to the chicks nestled high atop one of the light posts. Large cottonwood trees line the river. Wallace Marine Park offers a glimpse of the great Oregon outdoors, yet it is also only a short walk over the pedestrian bridge to downtown Salem, Oregon’s capital city.

During the glorious summer months, average high temperatures in the Willamette Valley hover in the comfortable mid-80s.

We love it here. We know you will, too.
