Once used for farming, this site became the community park it is today with the help of several neighborhood and conservation groups. Just over half of the site is dedicated to manicured, turf park activities, while the remainder is used for a native prairie grass exhibit.
Northeast Community Park has two practice soccer and baseball/softball fields, a maintenance building with public restrooms, a two-mile walking trail, and a picnic shelter with six picnic tables. The park trail connects to the Linear Trail via a suspension bridge.

Practice sports fields are on a first-come basis. Reservations are taken for the park shelter at Northeast Community Park by calling MPRD at 785-587-2754. Use is on a first-come, first-served basis if there are no reservations.
