The park is home of the 2003 Little League National Champions, the East Boynton Beach Little League. In 2006, producers of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition heard about the park through applications to the show from people in the community. This was three months after damage occurred due to Hurricane Wilma in October 2005. It was the community spirit ABC saw in an audition that weighed heavily in the City's favor, producers said. The Boynton project, part of the show's After the Storm series on hurricane-damaged communities aired in the Spring of 2006. The producers of the popular home-remodeling television show came to town to "make over" the damaged facility. ABC renovated the northeast fields where the younger children play. The City Commission agreed to spend $143,000 to renovate the northwest fields, where the older children play. The makeover included new irrigation, fencing, batting cages, replacing light poles, bleachers, grass and sod and new park sign. The show's crews also repaired the roof and interior of the concession stand. This park is open Sunrise to sunset. Lighted areas open until 10pm. ¬† The park consists of baseball fields, batting cage, a¬†concession building, drinking fountains, horseshoe court, open play area, pavilion, and restrooms.
