Wallace Marine Park

Built in 1986, the Wallace Marine Park Softball Complex was the first star complex constructed in the United States. Its five natural, lit fields are surrounded by shaded and grassy park areas. 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.

You will find seating for more than 1,000 spectators, including an elevated grandstand and portable bleachers. Park amenities include more than 400 parking spaces, a covered playground, permanent restrooms, and full concessions. Twelve satellite playing fields are close by.

The park provides a comfortable playing experience with a cool breeze coming off the river, ample shade trees, and low humidity. Situated in one of the most striking and delightful locations in the Pacific Northwest, Wallace Marine Park is roughly one hour from Portland International Airport and just minutes from fine dining, scenic vineyards, tax-free shopping, and recreational destinations.
