Enjoy the baseball softball field Anna Maria Island style. Get a baseball game going at Birdie Tebbetts Field in Holmes Beach on beautiful Anna Maria Island!
Baseball Softball Field Anna Maria Island
The baseball diamond is open to the public so anyone can hit the ball around. It’s always a good idea to stay flexible. Have an alternative plan in the case that the field is already in use.
Just South of the diamond, there’s a large open space. Play baseball or softball here too. There is a trolley stop very close to the baseball diamond. It’s located in front of the skate park, so you don’t have to drive or worry about a place to park.
Anna Maria Island boasts several large open areas and the public space in Holmes Beach is no exception. Just east of Marina Drive between 59th Street and 62nd Street there is a very large open space. This is also very close to the Island Real Estate Marina Drive location. In this area you will find the only public baseball or softball diamond on Anna Maria Island.
In summary, enjoy a ball game in Holmes Beach at 5901 Marina Drive!
Join our excitement to see the ALL NEW Holmes Beach Skate Park under construction as of 11-2019!
Built in 2003, the Holmes Beach skatepark has been well loved and enjoyed by locals yet after 15 years became in need of repairs. With help from one of the designers of Bradenton’s Riverwalk skatepark, the city looks to ride the momentum of what is considered by skateboard enthusiasts as not only a sport, but a lifestyle.
The Holmes Beach park, located at 5901 Marina Dr., closed in 2017 for repairs. The city took the opportunity to look at ways to enhance and expand the park. It remained closed throughout 2018 as early conceptual designs for a new park mimicked a lot of what is already there and residents rejected what was being offered.
The city went back to the proverbial drawing board and in December, Tito Porrata of Pivot Custom Skateparks, working with city engineer Lynn Burnett, presented an updated design that was widely accepted by the community and elected officials.
The city commission agreed to move forward and pledged $150,000 toward the redesign. A drop-in bowl is still being considered for the new park.
The toddler park that was next to the skatepark is being moved close to the pavilion at City Park to the north of City Hall. Titsworth said it’s to make room for the new skatepark, but also gives a better separation of the smaller children from those using the skatepark.
Other improvements coming to the city is a proposal to add a kayak launch and nature trail at Grassy Point and the city is making improvements at its dog park. The baseball field is being redesigned as a multipurpose field, which will leave room to relocate the existing large dog park and make improvements, while the small dog park will remain at its current location.
