Fruitland's recreational facilities are funded by the City and managed by a Recreation Commission, which meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, (except July & August) to plan for and provide a wide variety of sports and leisure activities.
Wicomcio County runs their Junior Girls Softball program at the Park Annex facility and the Fruitland Little League runs a summer youth Little League program at the Recreational Park. In addition the Fruitland Falcons Youth Sports Program runs a football and lacrosse progam at the Park Annex Complex's Red Men Field. The Recreation Commission also sponsors a winter basketball program at Fruitland Primary School.
Fruitland currently supports a 38-acre recreational park and sports complex fronting on South Brown Street and South Division Street comprised of the Recreational Park (27 acres) and the Park Annex (11 acres).
Baseball, softball, soccer, a football/lacrosse field and horseshoe facilities are available as well as a playground for children, picnic pavilion and paved fitness trails. Future plans for the park include a community building.
These wonderful facilities are a source of pride for our community and provide a much-needed service to our citizens.
If you are interested in renting a facility please contact City Hall at 410-548-2800.
