New Park is fortunate to be located adjacent to one of Montgomery’s Edward Thompson Ballfields with Montgomery’s only Miracle League Field, providing an opportunity for convenient access to sports for all children.

Footprints Ministry is a 501c3 who serves area hospitals and distributes gift bags to parents who have a baby admitted into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This ministry has touched the lives of so many families. New Park is a sponsor of Footprints to the Finishline, a 5K and 1 mile Fun Run at GracePointe Church that runs through the neighborhood.
