The park spreads out over 29 acres with lots of greenbelt to enjoy along with tree-lined paved walking, jogging and biking pathways along with picnic tables.
The park is also a place of great Sarasota history as it was the original site of baseball spring training for decades.
From 1924, when spring training first came to Sarasota, to 1988 when the Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers played the last game in Payne Park, it was the spring training home to the New York Giants, Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox.

Payne Park is also home to an auditorium, complete with a stage, built in 1962, which is the site throughout the year for a wide array of activities from dances and concerts to workshops and seminars, meetings and even wedding receptions! You can rent the auditorium for your special event: 941-954-4165.
In August, 2014 they opened a café, simply called Cafe in the Park!
There are three additional features in the Park; a playground for kids, a skate park and a tennis center.

Payne Park Tennis Center
