Smith Park is located on the east side of Rexburg and is one of the community's favorite parks. It has a gazebo, picnic tables, baseball fields, tennis courts, kiddie park, playground equipment, antique steam engine, and barbeque areas.
The Smith Park is extremely popular because of its lush green shrubbery, grass and trees, as well as its many other attractions. Art and concerts in the park are enjoyable activities that are provided in the summer months. Smith Park includes all of Block 36 of the 1883 Rexburg town site survey and was transferred from the LDS Church to the city by quitclaim deed on May 26, 1954. It was named “Smith Park" in honor of Mayor J. Fred Smith. In 1962 an antique steam engine was placed in the park adjacent to Main Street. This engine was owned by James W. Webster and was used on the Webster-Woodmansee farm in the early days of dry farming on the Rexburg Bench.
The gazebo and picnic areas can be reserved for a fee by calling 208-359-3020 Ext. 0.
