Four clubs to serve the River Vally

  • EVANS - Constructed in 1966, the Evans Club was built in memory of the late Elizabeth Evans. A successful $2.5 million capital campaign was held in 2003 for expansion and renovation to the facility.
  • GOLDTRAP/GARDNER - The Goldtrap-Gardner Boys & Girls club was built in 1993, after a successful $1.3 million capital campaign. The club is named after the late A. Curtis Goldtrap Sr., who with his son Curtis Goldtrap Jr. donated the property for the facility. The late 'Tiny' Gardner established endownment funding for the club's operations.
  • JEFFREY/GLIDEWELL - Originally build in 1957 on the campus of Westark (UAFS), the club was named after the late Bill Jeffrey. Because of the continued growth of the college, the club was relocated in 1978 to its current site at 4905 North 'O' Street. A major expansion also brought a new dedication in the name of Jerry Glidewell, CEO & club member for 35 years.
  • STEPHENS - Groundbreaking for the Stephens Club was held in 1981. The facility is named after the late E.S. Stephens. The Club was destroyed by a tornado in 1996. After reconstruction, the Stephens Club was re-dedicated in 1997..
  • HUNTS PARK - Dedicated in 1947, Hunts Park was named after the late R.T. Hunt. The faility has been used for club sports and activities for more than 7 decades. In 2019, a successful $2.5 million capital campaign was conducted through the efforts of Sam Sicard. A lead gift of $1 million from First National Bank helped jump-start the campaign. Renovations include new restrooms, concessions, bleachers, batting cages, bullpens, sports turf, and more.
