Located in the Talamore Subdivision on Ackman and Route 47, Tomaso Sports Park was part of the open space agreement with developers. Developers are to provide a specific amount of open space for parks, schools, easements, etc. to benefit the community. Soccer fields opened spring of 2008 and we began baseball/softball play in July 2008.
Tomaso Sports Park was dedicated to the late Carl Tomaso, Carl was the Huntley Village Manager who passed away unexpectedly in July 2008. Known as “Coach Tomaso” to many, Carl was an avid sports fan and it was his passion to see young children enjoying sports to cheering on the Cubs and Bears.
Tomaso Sports Park is a hub of action from April to October. Baseball, softball and soccer abound at the 38 acre site with 7 soccer/football fields, 6 baseball/softball fields of various sizes, recreation path, playground, plaza area with restrooms, lighted ball fields and scoreboards. Programs are offered for ages 3 to 81 years of age. The Park District’s Smart Start Sports program is a parent/children program that instills not only skills of a sport, but also spending time with the family, sportsmanship and going outside to play.
