On August 5, 1908 the heirs of Charles Rietz donated property on Rietz Hill to the City for a public park and pleasure grounds. The only provision made was that it shall be named after Charles Rietz. The park is located on the southeast of Manistee, bounded by Vine, Forest, Park and Main Streets. There is a fenced baseball diamond with bleachers. Also available are picnic tables, playground equipment and a basketball court in the adjacent park area. Universally Accessible Restrooms were constructed and a new ball field perimeter fence was installed in 1996. In 2001 the infield was entirely reconstructed. Additional Playground equipment was installed in 2002.
