John Fry Sports Park

John Fry Park is located in south Edmonton between 28 Avenue and 31 Avenue. It is a staffed world class multi-use ball facility that has hosted numerous World Class and Canadian Championship level events.

Park History

Officially named on November 27, 1979, in recognition of John Wesley Fry (1876-1946), who was Mayor of Edmonton from 1937-1945.

John Fry played a significant role in refinancing Edmonton’s debt during the Great Depression and guiding Edmonton through World War 2.
