Loveland Park, at 67 acres, is the second largest park in Newport.  It was established in the mid-1970's on land donated by the Bailey family.  The park's entrance is on Glen Road near Century Avenue.  A walking trail along Glen Road makes it safe and easy for pedestrians and bikers to get to the park.  Three pavilions are nestled amongst a playground, tennis courts, two ball fields, and the Newport Athletic Assocaiation's batting cages.  Nearby are the ice rinks and warming houses. 

The south end of the park, which rises above the ball fields, is devoted to nearly four miles of hiking trails.  The trailhead is marked by a wooden sign and framed by lilac bushes as trial shrubs by Bailey Nurseries.

The Park was originally named Eyeh-shaw Park after the Red Rock, held sacred by the Dakotah, and now in a place of honor by the Newport Methodist Church.  In 1982 the name was changed to honor Basil Loveland, who served 22 years as Mayor.
