Laura Leake Park
Laura Leake Park is enjoyed throughout the year for family-focused entertainment and is the site of the annual Juneteenth celebration. With a basketball court, swing sets, playground, space to play a little baseball, a picnic shelter, and sidewalks for leisurely strolls, this small park is a nice environment for weekends and time out with the kids. Other amenities include grills for barbeques, picnic tables, a water fountain as well as public restrooms.
This site is named for Laura H. Leake, a local resident who donated land for the park. Laura Leake Park is located at 500 N. Maple of Centralia, Illinois.
