Old Mountain Field Improvements Old Mountain Field (OMF) is South Kingstown’s oldest public park, deeded to the Town by the Hazard Family in 1938. To this day, Old Mountain remains one of the Town’s most active recreational facilities, featuring lighted baseball and softball fields, basketball and tennis courts, a skateboard park, picnic area, and nature trails. By virtue of its location in the center of Wakefield, OMF is classified as an urban park within walking distance of surrounding neighborhoods located in Peace Dale and Downtown Wakefield. It is used for Recreation Department programs and camps, high school athletics and physical education; and multiple community-based athletic leagues.
The long-term CIP calls for construction of a new restroom and concession building among other upgrades to parking, traffic flow, pedestrian and ADA access, and athletic facilities. Various elements of the park such as the skate park, tennis courts, and baseball field have gone through recent planned upgrades. The restroom and concession facilities are the major element identified for replacement within the next six years.
