In 1911, William Doud Packard added "Philanthropist" to his role as an industrialist and community leader in his hometown of Warren. When a state selection committee chose a Kent, Ohio site for a state normal school (later known as Kent State University) over the Kinsman Farm site in Warren, Packard purchased the Mahoning Avenue location and donated the property to the City to be a public park. Packard Park was officially dedicated on Monday, July 5, 1915. Over the remaining years of his life, W.D. Packard took personal interest in the further development of the park. A closed Shelter House with a natural Amphitheatre was the perfect setting for outdoor summer concerts.

The City bought Perkins Park for the Perkins Estate in 1931. The Park, first known as the Perkins Flats, also included the Perkins House (which now serves as City Hall).

The estate consisted of the Perkins House, 7.5 acres of beautiful grounds and 32 acres of the field previously known as Perkins Flats, lying between the homestead and the Mahoning River. The first baseball games were played the following May in 1932, on five brand-new diamonds. The park's development continues to the present day, with a volleyball court added in 2013 — see a gallery of its construction and inaugural game here.

9794 East Market Street
Warren, OH 44484
(330) 856-1063

Old Avalon, owned by the city of Warren, is a classic course featuring small greens. The front nine is more forgiving with less trees but is known for its difficult starting hole. The back nine is where the course stands out. Tree-lined fairways on the back require more accuracy off the tee. Three holes feature two-tiered greens on the back nine. The difficult loop of holes #11-15 is simply known as The Loop. With only one par 5 on the back, the Old Course plays to a par of 71.

The course opened to the public in 1928 and has been a favorite in the Youngstown-Warren area for thousands of golfers. Old Avalon’s practice range is also a great facility to learn the game. Other amenities include instruction by PGA Professional Scott Karabin, club fitting, and a pavilion that can accommodate 150 guests.
