Park Information

Hampton Park is one of Southgate’s largest park sites, and its central location along Florin Mall Drive makes it a popular destination for numerous sports. The park is bounded on the north by the Jose P. Rizal Community Center and the south by Jack N. Sheldon Park – a length of more than a quarter of a mile – and there is likely something for everyone in this corridor of public park space. It provides a large vista of green space that softens this mostly residential neighborhood and provides ample options for ball and field sports. The park’s ball field backstops, team and spectator areas are excellent for organized team play, and parking is never an issue, with ample on street parking and a nearby lighted lot at the Rizal Community Center.

Woody Hampton Park was named for Woodrow “Woody” Hampton, a longtime community activist and friend of Southgate Recreation & Park District. Hampton was involved in various organizations including the Community Development Block Grant South Sacramento Target Area Committee, where he successfully advocated for funding allocations for District facilities. He volunteered with many Southgate special events, such as fundraisers with Olympic Gold Medalist Billy Mills in support of youth sports activities.
