Mylan Park: The Ins and Outs
Your go-to guide for one-of-a-kind events and sports facilities
Located in Morgantown, WV, approximately 1.6 miles off of I-79, sits 350 acres of open space known as Mylan Park.
Mylan Park is a non-profit recreational and educational complex featuring open land, sports fields, infrastructure for festivals, a 53,000 square-foot indoor center for one-of-a-kind events, and more. It’s no wonder Mylan Park is a popular destination for local events and organized athletic groups.
The Park’s mission is to plan, organize and support recreational and educational programs that not only benefit North Central West Virginia citizens, but also the local community of Morgantown and the entire Mountaineer Country.
Mylan Park offers open play and camps for sports like soccer, lacrosse, baseball, and softball, as well as private lessons and clinics for young and aspiring athletes. Mylan’s multi-purpose turf field stays busy with middle-to-high school level athletes, as well as adults and coaches.

Mylan Park offers a variety of facilities to fit everyone’s needs. Access to each facility is easy to navigate and parking is always free. Restrooms and concessions are available at most sites, and
the weather is not a factor. The main facilities include:
- Lower Turf Youth and High School Baseball Field
- Upper Turf Youth Baseball/Softball Field
- Multi-Purpose Turf Field: includes goals and lines of the field for a variety of sports
- Anker Fields: four natural fields–two high school baseball and two high school softball–recently renovated
