John Ducey Park was a 6,500 seat baseball stadium in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Originally built in 1935, it was torn down after sixty years of use in 1995 and replaced by Telus Field on the same site. Beginning in 1981, John Ducey Park was the home field for the AAA Edmonton Trappers of the Pacific Coast League.

The stadium was originally known as Renfrew Park, but was renamed in later years for John Ducey, an Edmonton baseball player who also owned the original Edmonton Eskimos Football team of the Canadian Football League (CFL).

Prior to Renfrew Park, Diamond Park was Edmonton's main baseball field. The field could hold a maximum of 2,500 spectators by law.

Trivia[edit]

John Ducey Park was the site where in 1982 former Trapper Ron Kittle hit his 50th home run of the season on the last game of the year. Kittle was named Minor League Player of the Year.
