Fritz Park is a pleasant slice of woodland north of Pauline a few blocks east of Stadium. Fritz Park is a cut-through for neighborhood kids walking to Eberwhite Elementary School. There is a basic playground with slide, climber, swing set, and picnic table.


German clubs were everywhere on the west side. The Turnverein (Gymnastics Club) exercised on land they owned south of Madison between South Fourth and South Fifth streets (approximately where Turner Park Court is today). Just to the west, German volunteer firemen owned the Relief Fire Company Park. The Schutzenbund Park, which belonged to a shooting club, was nearby on Pauline, where Fritz Park is now. Other clubs met in Hangsterfer's Hall or Fred Rettich's Orchestrian Hall on Main, or at the Germania Club in the Staeblers' Germania Hotel (now the Earle Building).
