Memorial Park – Home of the Dundas Dukes
DIRECTIONS – Park Address: 214 South 1st Street, Dundas, Minnesota
Memorial Park sits on the Cannon River in Dundas, Minn., a historic milltown. Situated walking distance from downtown Dundas, the ballpark hosts over 60 games a year including the Dukes, Northfield Legion, Northfield High School, an over-35 team, the Milltown Outlaws, and Minnesota State High School League Section Playoffs.
A COMMUNITY OF VOLUNTEERS MAKE IT HAPPEN
The ballpark is maintained and funded by the Dundas Baseball Association, the parent organization of the Dukes. The Dukes rely on a network of dedicated volunteers and a small seasonal staff to manicure the four-acre complex. If interested in volunteering at the park or with the association, please visit our Volunteer Page.
The ballpark was featured in Todd Mueller’s 2016 book, Town Ball Parks of Minnesota, and was a stop on FOX9’s inaugural Town Ball Tour in 2018. It was ranked ninth on Minnesota ballpark enthusiast Bob Greeley’s (@bob_greeley76) Top 100 list in 2019.
The park hosted the 2003 Minnesota State Amateur Baseball Tournament, the 2004 Minnesota State Legion Baseball Tournament and for 29 years the site for the annual Dundas Invitational.
The park in 2021 is undergoing a roughly $100,000 renovation which includes an update to the main grandstand, a 500 square foot press box and a new audio system. The updates are coming ahead of the 2022 Minnesota Baseball Association Class B and C State Tournaments, which Dundas will co-host with Miesville and Faribault.
In 2016, the park underwent a renovation of its grandstand area. The $100,000 project moved fans 12 feet closer to home plate, included 105 stadium chairs, a tie-back net system to replace cyclone fencing, a ramp for ADA accessibility and three flower garden areas.
The field is available for rent for youth games, weddings and events. For more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Park has a Pavilion that can be rented through the City of Dundas.
