Reagan Sports Park
Margarita Road - Map
Reagan Sports Park is one of the largest parks in Temecula. The
park has a great number of amenities used by many of the local sports
programs in Temecula. The park is also located near the Temecula
Valley High School and the Temecula Duck Pond Park.
On March 3, 1983, President Ronald Reagan, in a speech before the United States Olympic Committee, paid tribute to the nation's can-do spirit, specifically citing the volunteers and donors of Temecula, among others. He said:
"The folks in a rather small town, Temecula ... got together and built themselves a sports park, held fund-raising barbecues and dinners. And those that didn't have money, volunteered the time and energy. And now the young people of that community have baseball diamonds for Little League and other sports events, just due to what's traditional Americanism."
else history may say about me when Im gone, I hope it will record
that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your
confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel
the road ahead with libertys lamp guiding your steps and
opportunitys arm steadying your way.
