History

Known for decades as "The Rec Field", Veterans Memorial Park was established in 1937, and officially named in 1961 to honor Saint Peter area veterans. The swimming pool was built in 1938, and in 1962 named for Roy "Truddie" Lindenberg (1900 to 1960), a student athlete, 11-varsity letter graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College, coach and high school teacher. Lindenberg was a city Alderman from 1937 to 1952. The changing house and pools were extensively renovated in the 1980s, when the separate kiddie-pool and diving pit were added.


Amenities

The baseball fields serve High School, St. Peter Baseball Association, Over 35, and Over 50 teams.


There is a skating rink, hockey rink and a warming house provided for winter sports activities. In the summer the hockey rink has been used for electric car racing. Several youth soccer fields and a newly constructed soccer rink with turf has been a great asset for summer activities.
