 Baseball and Softball

Our baseball and softball fields are seasonally used and are among the best in the region. The fields have most recently been host to regional and state tournaments and home of the 2012 Baseball 3A State Champions and 2016 and 2019 Softball State Champions. Thanks to generous donors and with the help of the Frontenac School District, new turf has been installed on the baseball infield and all of the softball field.


Frontenac Pool

The Frontenac Pool has been updated to include a zero-depth entry and has many activities for kids and seniors throughout the  summer. The pool is also host to many children’s activities during Frontenac Homecoming



City Park

Rehabilitated in the late 1990s, the Frontenac City Park allow fishing and access to a shelter house. The waters are restocked annually through a grant through the Community Fisheries Assistance Program.

Walking and Runnning

The residents of Frontenac frequent the miles of sidewalks which line our main and connector streets. Thanks to a federal grant through the Kansas Transportation Alternatives Grant, new sidewalks will be installed on McKay Street from US69 to Santa Fe, one block from McKay to Lanyon on Crawford, and one block from McKay to Lanyon on Cayuga. In addition, new stormwater drains, crosswalks as well curb and gutter will be installed. This project is expected to commence in 2024.
