Constructed just prior to 1988 to host the 1988 Saskatchewan Summer Games, Spruce Haven Ball Park is named after the beautiful grove of spruce trees that is adjacent to the diamonds.

The Park consists of three softball-sized diamonds and one baseball diamond. The three softball diamonds are suitable for minor baseball, slo-pitch and softball, all with groomed, shale infields. The main diamond has fixed bleachers and has field lighting to allow for night games. The baseball diamond has a grass infield and shale base paths. Complete with field lighting, this diamond is suitable for midget and adult baseball. All of the diamonds have enclosed dugouts. These beautiful diamonds are all irrigated to keep the grass soft and green during the playing season. Spruce Haven Ball Park has a concession building with washrooms and change rooms and score clocks.
 
These diamonds have seen some high caliber action over the years, hosting the Annual Ducks Unlimited Fast Pitch Shoot-Out, a tournament featuring some of the top men’s fastball teams in North America and numerous provincials. 
           
In addition to this beautiful ball facility, the City also has diamonds located on the Exhibition Grounds on the south side of the city and a baseball diamond located on the Kerry Vickar Centre grounds.
 
Rental fees vary for the ball diamonds and bookings may be made by contacting Facility Bookings at 752-RENT
