The Grace Shrader Park origination when a group of citizens set up a 501(c)(3) corporation called Dandridge Recreational Facilities, Inc. (DRF) to begin working toward constructing a youth oriented sport and recreational facility.

On February 2, 1999, the DRF and the Town of Dandridge entered into an agreement which made this dream come true and the name Field of Dreams evolved.

Through grants from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s Local Parks and Recreation Funds and the efforts of the DRF, South Jefferson Little League Baseball, Dandridge Bronco Football League, the Town of Dandridge, and numerous volunteers, both corporate and private individuals, the dream has become a reality and future expansions are happening each year.

The facility currently houses four (4) lighted Little League size baseball fields, two (2) Senior League size baseball fields, football field, soccer field, two concession stands, restroom facilities, picnic pavilion and volleyball court, approximately three-fourths miles of walking trail, swings, slides and other younger-children outdoor games.

The most recent addition is the Field of Dreams Activity Center.

Future plans call for lighting of the senior league baseball fields, construction of additional restrooms and concession stands, expanding the outdoor walking trail, construction of additional picnic facilities with grills, tables, and benches and lightning the outdoor walking trails.
