Lela McGuire Jeffery Park
The Ball Complex is a result of a generous bequest from Lela McGuire Jeffery and the hard work of the Paulding Ball Association along with many generous donors. The park opened May 14, 2011 and hosts summer baseball and softball games. The ball complex has four separate ball diamonds and one with lights for night games. All four diamonds are named after their donors, Field #1 Zachary Arend Memorial Field, Field #2 Defiance Metal Products Field, Field #3 LaFarge Field, and Field #4 Doyle Hartzog Field. The complex is complete with a concession stand, restrooms and is handicap accessible.
The ball complex located adjacent to the reservoir is one of Northwest Ohio's finest facilities complete with three brick dust infields. The park hosts several USSSA slow-pitch softball tournaments throughout the summer: along with weekly men's, woman's and co-ed leagues. The park also provides a children's playground, basketball court, Wiffle Ball field, and pavilion. Contact the Village Office to reserve the pavilion or any of the fields.
