Lakeville, MN Knockerball Venues
My preference in Lakeville are the Hasse Arena fields mapped below. Great parking, excellent grass, and although we don't use the lines much, they seem to repaint them often. The fields are as level as you'll find and there is a lot of open area if the fields are occupied. The downside here is that it is an old farm field, so on a windy day it's pretty exposed.
Apple Valley, MN Knockerball Venues
Delaney Park is my go to in Apple Valley. While there are other locations with more fields, this one has the right balance of less competition for playing time yet ample space in the event that there is. Some of the other large Apple Valley facilities are hard to coordinate which field you will be at and are heavily utilized by organized sports. The parking lot isn't very big, but the grass is good and there is a lot of shoulder street parking available if the lot is full. It also has a pavilion if you want to have the party there before or after Knockerball.
Rosemount, MN Knockerball Venues
Shannon Park is a good choice here and parking isn't an issue since it shares a giant one with the elementary. Excellent grass and numerous ball field outfields to play on if the soccer field is taken. It's very convenient for many in Rosemount since it sits in the middle of a lot of residential homes.
Eagan, MN Knockerball Venues
I prefer the medium sized parks as they still offer ammenities and alternative places to play, but are generally less busy. And in Eagan, that's Bridle Ridge Park. There's a soccer field and an optional ball field if things are busy as a back-up. The lot is small, but it is dedicated to the park and not shared with anything else.
