A Community Tribute
Luke Jensen Sports Park
The Luke Jensen Sports Park is a 20-acre public recreation site in Vancouver, Washington, providing a vibrant home to local soccer and baseball leagues. It was designed by LSW Architects in 2012. Named in honor of the late Luke Jensen, a King’s Way Christian Schools student who battled leukemia, the park is both a fitting tribute and an important location for Vancouver’s young sports enthusiasts.
The park’s athletic facilities include three synthetic turf fields, two natural turf baseball fields, batting cages, and a full playground. The fields radiate from the centrally-located Bud Van Cleve Community Room. The 2,200 sf community room is located on the second floor with windows on all sides to allow unobstructed views of all the fields.
One of the unique features of the complex is the six-acre forested neighborhood park on the north side of the property. Walking and biking paths coupled with picnic areas create new opportunities for the community to enjoy and experience nature.
