History: The groundbreaking for this 90 acre park was held on February 21, 2003. A large portion of this park will help preserve the environmentally sensitive area around McGirts Creek. At the completion of construction in March 2007, the park includes a community center, basketball courts, playground, picnic areas, trails, three youth baseball fields and two soccer fields. A highlight of the park is the "Field of Dreams" Miracle League field, where special needs children are able to experience playing in their own baseball league. Concieved by the West Jacksonville Rotary and funded by private donations, Lew Brantley Field was dedicated in May 2007. Park was named Lew Brantley Park in March 2011 from McGirts Creek Park.
