Bailey Park is a semi-abandoned recreational facility at Knapp and East Miltonia avenues in Youngstown, Ohio that was acquired by the city on June 27, 1931.(2) In 1934, the Works Progress Administration (WPA) was authorized to install more baseball diamonds on vacant land in neighborhoods with Bailey Park slated for major improvements.(1) Over 100 WPA workers were employed in the upgrades at Bailey Park in 1935 and 1936, and a new concrete and brick grandstand was erected in 1939. By the following year, the park had six hardball and two softball diamonds. The grandstand was enlarged and dedicated on July 7, 1948 and again in 1959. By the end of the decade, Bailey Park sported 13 baseball diamonds and one lighted softball field.

The park today features three open picnic pavilions, a hardball baseball diamond, playground, practice football field, two tennis courts and a basketball court.
