Description: League Park opened to the public on May 4, 1906 in Akron, Ohio. The park originally was located at the East End Grounds, but the location was unsatisfactory for play. The park then moved to the corner of Carroll and Beaver streets. The first game in the new stadium was between Newark and the Akron Tip-Tops. The Tip-Tops were a member of the Ohio & Pennsylvania League (O&P)which was considered to be a "C class" team. The Tip-Tops had much success, even winning the pennant from 1908-1911. In 1911, the O&P folded and the field became used by the University of Akron and Akron High School. It was also home to various semi-pro baseball teams. In 1920 the field became home to the Akron Pros, a charter member of the National Football League. Then in 1922 the field was sold to the Summit Growers association. The grounds were home to a farmers market from 1922-1976. View on Ohio Memory.

Located between Gilbert Avenue and Columbia Parkway (U.S.) and comprised of about 185 acres in the Mount Adams community of Cincinnati, Ohio, Eden Park was assembled by a series of purchases beginning in 1859. The name came, naturally, from the Garden of Eden and was given by Nicholas Longworth who owned a large tract which constitutes the main portion of the park. Eden Park is the home of the Cincinnati Art Museum, Cincinnati Art Academy, the Navigation Monument, the Capitoline Wolf Statue, and the Irwin M. Krohn (Eden Park) Conservatory. View on Ohio Memory.

Eden Park’s first greenhouses, built in the 1880s, were used strictly for growing plants. In 1902, a new greenhouse designed for public displays was opened. The following year, the display greenhouse held a chrysanthemum show, and the Park Board decided to maintain a consistent change of plants and flowers to keep displays new and attractive to visitors. As a result, more than 300,000 people visited the greenhouse in its first two years. In 1930, the Park Board decided to replace its old greenhouse buildings with a modern plant conservatory. The new building was designed in the Art Deco style, the leading design movement of the 1920s & ‘30s, and was built of aluminum and glass. The Eden Park Conservatory opened to the general public on Sunday, March 26, 1933. December of that year, the Conservatory began a holiday tradition of exhibiting its Educational Christmas Tree, decorated with ornaments made of natural materials and crafted by Conservatory horticulturists. On April 30, 1937, the Board officially named the new conservatory the Irwin M. Krohn Conservatory, in honor of Irwin Krohn's 25 years of service on the Board of Park Commissioners.

Island Park began in the late 19th century as an amusement park named White City Amusement Park.

On June 20, 1914, the park formally reopened as Island Park. The park’s name today is Island MetroPark. It is operated by Fiver River MetroParks.
