Clifford R. Betts Memorial Park

More commonly known as Betts Park, this property certainly lives up to its designation as an active park. It is the home of the Warren Area High School Tennis Team, several adult softball leagues, and the site of Warren County Youth Football League practices. The park is located just off of Route 6 on Ludlow Street and is the site of several annual and biennial events including the Industrial League Softball Tournament, Warren County Humane Society Softball Tournament, the Fourth of July Celebration, American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Pennsylvania Canoe and Kayak Championships, the USCA Canoe and Kayak Championships, the Gus Macker Basketball Tournament, St. Joseph Parish Annual Picnic, and the Alzheimer's Association Annual Walk to End Alzheimer's.

 For those wishing to enjoy the park at a more leisurely pace, a walking trail follows the park perimeter and offers tranquil views of the Allegheny  River. The eastern portion of the trail passes the Penn State Master Gardeners' Trial Garden where several species of flowering plants developed by the Penn State University Horticultural Department are grown and evaluated.

 At fifty acres, Betts Park is the largest of the City's active parks with assets including:

  • Betts Field - Softball
