THE GOLF COURSE
The Parks Department provides maintenance and grooming for most of the sports facilities throughout the city:
In addition to baseball and softball fields at Wainwright Athletic Complex, where SP's high school teams play, South Portland is home to two Little League organizations which utilize school fields as well as those located at Wilkinson Park (South Portland American Little League), and Pine St. (South Portland National Little League.) The Pine St. field is maintained by the SPNLL.
Public basketball courts are located at Memorial Middle School, Redbank Community Center, High/Sawyer Street Park, Wilkinson Park and Legere Park.
The South Portland Municipal Golf Course is a par 33 course with a rating of 59.0 and a slope rating of 92. This nine hole golf course is situated on 25 acres located between Westbrook Street, Wescott Road, and Broadway. The clubhouse, which shares a building with the Branch Library, is located at 155 Wescott Rd.
Public tennis courts are located at South Portland High School and Small Elementary School. They are open to the public on a first come, first serve basis unless a school or Parks & Rec function is going on.
|WAINWRIGHT RECREATION COMPLEX|
Wainwright Complex has over 66 acres of developed athletic fields which accommodate many sports, including baseball, softball, lacrosse, soccer, hurling, football and ultimate Frisbee. The complex also plays host to the Greenbelt Walkway that connects a 6-mile section of bike/walking trail to Bug Light Park. In winter months Wainwright turns into a winter wonderland filled with opportunities to skate on the ice rink, use our cross country skiing groomed trails, and snowshoeing around the complex.
