Moorman

Moorman Park - Quincy Park District

Moorman Park is located on 80 acres off North 39th Street. Its features include playground equipment added in 2011, baseball/softball hitting machines, miniature golf, concession stand, drinking fountains, restrooms, and shelter houses with electricity, grills and picnic tables.

Moorman Park also features a lake for fishing and paddle boats, as well as baseball fields, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, a disc golf course, an archery range and a one-mile path for walking/jogging.

Pepsi Field is a premier synthetic turf field located where Upper Moorman Field previously was.  Due to the effective permeability of the synthetic turf, Pepsi Field will remain playable in wet conditions that would be impossible to play on with traditional dirt fields.  The new field features a synthetic turf infield with base anchors at 60′ and 70′ along with a portable mound.  Portable bases for turf will also be available for base distances that vary from the anchor placement.  Pepsi Field was made possible by contributions from Refreshment Services Pepsi and Adams County Little League.

A stretch of sidewalk at Moorman Park that extends between 39th Street east to The Batting Cage area was completed in 2009. The sidewalk provides extra safety and convenience for those visiting the Batting Cage and nearby softball field, as well as the many Moorman Park walkers. Before the sidewalk was built, the only paved surface for walking along that area was the park road. The sidewalk is six feet wide and about one-third mile long and was constructed by Quincy Park District staff.

The park is also known as Lower and Upper Moorman.
