OFFICE & RESTROOMS
The nucleus of Newton Park is the 60' x 120' office facility located on the west side of the facility, adjacent to the west entrance location. This concrete building serves as the home for restrooms and our A&M Home Services concession facilities for the four combination fields to the west. (Additional restrooms and concession are located on the lower level of the park's Overstock Central Fireworks Golden Dome, centered around our baseball fields.)
Newton Park features large eight foot wide asphalt walking paths that connect all points of Newton Park. Whether you venture to the soccer fields, the ball diamonds or the playground area, you will never have to walk through the dirt at Newton Park.
The paths also serve as a nature walk through the small woods near the pond on the southwest corner of the facility. The walking path around the facility, open 24 hours a day, equals 1 mile.
The entire facility including the soccer fields, ball diamonds and parking areas are fully illuminated with Musco lighting for night time competition.
WALKING PATH & LIGHTING
The children's Centier Bank play area is located next to the main buliding, infront of the restrooms, water fountain, and A&M Concession Stand.
The kids have plenty of room to play in a safe, fenced in padded area.
This is a great place for the kids to "unwind" after their competition or for the littler ones to enjoy when big brother or sister are in competition on one of the many playing fields at Newton Park.
The playgroung includes several slides, monkey bars, climbing wall, and an area designed for younger children.
