Memorial Stadium is quiet these days...no football games or track meets. Selma High School and some other area football teams use the stadium in the fall, and in spring, it is the site of area and state track meets as well as Special Olympics. On July 4, it becomes the venue for the city's patriotic celebration and fireworks show. In the distance are Bloch Park, the baseball stadium; and Valley Creek Park, site of the walking track, a playground and picnic area. Behind you are tennis courts, a skate park and barbecue pit. War memorials line the stadium's front. Inside are city recreation department offices.
