Overview

Billy Gene Jackson Sr. Park is located alongside the Salvation Army's Richard Hazel Youth Center on North Lake Park Drive. The pairing of the two sites is appropriate as Mr. Jackson, whom the park is named after, is well known for inspiring at-risk children. The park consists of a lighted softball field, lighted basketball courts with bleachers, lighted tennis courts, a playground area, and a permanent concessions building with a covered picnic area and restroom facilities. Additionally, if you follow the road around the softball field, you will find that the park has a walking trail leading to a small beach area with a fishing pier on Johnson Pond. A variety of youth programs are offered at the park in a cooperative effort between the Wicomico County Department of Recreation, the Salisbury Advisory Council on Youth Activities (SACYA), and the Salvation Army. During the summer, for instance, sports lessons are provided in the mornings and a youth basketball league is held in the evenings on the lighted courts. Additionally, the park is one of the county's Summer Playground Program evening sites, providing free activities for children ages 5 and up starting in June each year. Like its namesake, Billy Gene Jackson Sr. Park is an incredible resource for the local community.
