Welcome Park is a community park in the City of Crystal. Its family-friendly amenities include a playground, green space and sports fields and courts (including a gaga pit). It is one of the Crystal’s most popular parks, offering field sports in the summer months and ice skating in the winter.

7 Ideas for Family Fun at Welcome Park

  1. Play kickball on one of the three softball fields. Don’t forget to bring a ball.
  2. Run around the Playground. Or just let the kids run. There is plenty of seating. The playground is convenient to both the parking lot and the softball fields.
  3. Bring a ball to play basketball.
  4. Play field games. Take advantage of the multi-purpose green space for space to run. We offer several ideas in60 Fun Outdoor Games for Kids.
  5. Try Gaga Ball. This park has a Gaga Pit. Find the rules of play here.
  6. Skate or practice hockey in the winter.
  7. Bring your dog. In the summer, the hockey rink is converted to an off-leash dog area and the city keeps cleanup bags onsite for convenient waste removal.

Winter in Welcome Park

this park is one of three parks in Crystal with a warming house and supervised ice rink. Weather and ice conditions permitting, the City of Crystal maintains its outdoor ice rinks from mid-December through mid-February. The warming house contains restrooms.

Recent Upgrades

Upgrades at this park were substantially completed in September of 2018. Before the upgrades, Welcome Avenue ran through the center of the park. This has been removed. The project included significant improvements to softball field #3, making it the city’s primary softball field in place of Becker Park, which is moving away from being a sports-centric park to play-centric park. Lights, irrigation and fencing were all added to the field.  The hockey rink was moved to the south side of the park and lighting was added for evening play.
