Luman Harris Park (formerly Pineywood Park), home of the Gardendale girl’s softball programs, is located off Pineywood Road on Park Street, across from Pineywood Baptist Church, about a quarter-mile south of Tarrant Road and one mile north of the intersection of U.S. Highway 31 and Pineywood Road. It was renamed on January 21, 1971 in honor of Gardendale native and former Atlanta Braves manager Luman Harris.

Playground of Miracles
Miracle League field

The park is composed of 3 regular softball fields, a Miracle League field, and a playground equipped for special needs children.


Three regulation size softball fields accommodate the Girl's Softball program.

The Miracle League field is ideally suited for athletes with special needs who compete as part of a national organization committed to providing opportunities for all children to play baseball regardless of physical ability. It was dedicated on April 25, 2009.

The playground was designed to allow physically-challenged children to play on specially designed equipment. It was named in honor of Raymond Doss and was dedicated on August 18, 2016.

On March 17, 2018 Field #2 was renamed Steve Ridener Field. Ridener was a long-time supporter and advocate for teaching kids the fundamentals of softball and baseball.
