Park Information

The Bartelso Park is currently operated by the Bartelso Community Development.  You will find many features within our park that we hope you will find enjoyable.


The softball diamond hosts several games throughout the summer to include a  Friday Night Clinton County Men's League, Thursday Night Clinton County Women's League, various Little League games and select/traveler teams throughout the week.  

The Baseball Diamond is home of our Bartelso Men's Clinton County Baseball Team.  You will find these "Barts" playing on various Sunday's throughout the summer. 

Adjacent to each ball diamond are overhead pavilions, equipped with a full kitchen, picnic tables and restrooms.  Children of all ages will have a fun time at both of our playground areas, batting cage, basketball court and rollerblading hockey rink. 

To reserve the baseball or softball ball diamond for your next practice or game, you will need to submit a request online.   This system is on a first come, first served basis for all town ball teams.  Please note that Bartelso ball teams have first access to both ball parks over "elete/select" ball teams.    


NEW for 2014 for any "elete/select" ball team that is wanting to reserve the ball diamond for their season is now required to pay a $200 fee for the year.  This fee is designed to help reimburse the community development for the lights, clean-up and ground maintenance.  Please contact Ryan Hoerchler to pay the annual fee.

To reserve the park pavilions and/or kitchens, please contact Craig Toennies at 765-2177.
