Soccer & Baseball
Riverview Park (The Fly) features athletic fields—some with lighting—for soccer, rugby, lacrosse and flag football league play and tournaments. A baseball/softball complex features five fields, one of which is specially designed with a rubberized surface that allows children with special needs to play baseball. The soccer fields and baseball diamonds located in the Park are operated by Carrollton Booster Club. Please contact Carrollton Booster Club for use of these facilities.
Miracle League Fields
The most unique of the five baseball fields, the Whitney Bank Miracle League Field, features a baseball diamond built atop a rubberized surface that allows children with special needs to play baseball. Civic leader David Voelker led the charge to build the field—it is Louisiana’s first Miracle Field and one of 200 in the United States. It was created through a partnership among Audubon, Children’s Hospital and the Miracle League of Greater New Orleans. Opening day was September 26, 2009 when 60 New Orleans area disabled youths played baseball for the first time ever.
The Riverview has been a popular picnic destination for over 50 years featuring grassy areas. Park Permits are required for parties planning to have any form of structure on park grounds (i.e. chairs, table, arch, tent, inflatable etc.) or if there are more than twenty-five (25) guests. Park Permits can be issued up to one (1) year in advance.
