On February 3, 2014 the Dayton City Council voted to officially change the name of 11th Street Park to Andrew Smith Park per a suggestion from Kathryn Windish.
Andrew Smith Park is located on the corner of 11th Street and Church Street in a peaceful residential area. This park is equipped with a children's play area that includes swings, a climbing rock, and a basketball court. The park also has public restrooms. This neighborhood park offers local residents a place to relax and connect with their neighbors.
Legion Field is a full City Block in size and is located in the middle of Dayton between Church and Oak Streets and between 3rd and 4th Streets. Zoned for public use, this park is maintained by the City of Dayton.
