Eden Prairie offers multiple softball leagues to cater to any softball enthusiast!

Men's, co-rec and women's leagues are available for various skill levels. Games are played at Hidden Ponds, Franlo, Homeward Hills, Riley Lake and Round Lake parks.

ROUND LAKE PARK FIELD CONSTRUCTION
The renovation of the Round Lake Park ballfields, a project that started in July 2016, continues throughout the 2017 softball season. Four shorter-length fields are being converted into three larger, 300-foot fields with improved lighting, better drainage and increased parking. A large shaded spectator structure is being installed at the junction of the fields. The construction continues through fall 2017 and the new fields are scheduled for action in 2018. Click here to learn more about the Round Lake Park project.

2017 FALL SOFTBALL
During construction, adult softball leagues have access to three lit 300-foot fields located at two sites and because of this, league offerings have been adjusted to accommodate the reduced number of lit fields. In addition to the two fields at Riley Lake Park and Round Lake Field 5, other City park fields without lights — Hidden Ponds, Homeward Hills and Franlo — may host adult softball during the construction. Thank you for your patience!
