In 1957 the Castroville Lions Club donated two city blocks to the City of Castroville with the stipulation that it be used for sporting activities and events. The Lions Sports Complex was previously used as a football field for St. Louis Catholic High School.
Lion's Park currently offers the following recreational opportunities:
- Baseball Fields
- Soccer Fields
- Walking Trail
The building of the gateway, and the rebuilding of the bleachers at the baseball field were done as Eagle Scout projects.
