About the Park

Formerly White Center Park, this park was renamed Steve Cox Memorial Park in 2007 in honor of a fallen King County Sheriff's Deputy who was also a beloved community leader. The park offers Mel Olson Stadium, baseball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, play and picnic areas, and a foot reflexology walking path. This park is also home to the White Center Community Center, an historical building constructed as a Works Progress Administration project in 1940.

Also known as the "Log Cabin", the community center houses King County Parks' White Center Teen Program, which provides after-school recreational programming to neighborhood youth aged 12 to 19.

In 2008, major renovations upgraded the baseball stadium with a synthetic turf infield and other improvements as part of King County Park's CPG program.
