The facility formerly known as the Rockport Recreation Park is no more after a dedication ceremony last weekend paid tribute to one of the town’s more respected and prolific contributors.

The area, which boasts a Babe Ruth-sized baseball field, two Little League fields, two tennis and basketball courts and a modest playground, will now be known as the Marge Jones Recreational Facility, dedicated to the longtime resident June 26.

Jones was a longtime Rockport resident, business owner, member of the town’s select board and community volunteer.

The sign was officially unveiled June 26.

The facility has hosted many Little League all-star tournaments in the past and also is a home field for Rockport’s Babe Ruth and Senior League Babe Ruth baseball teams.

The facility is located on Route 90 in Rockport near the entrance to Camden Hills Regional High School.
