History

The land along Ellerbee Creek that was to become Northgate Park was donated to the City by Frank and Ruby Barfield to establish a park and bird sanctuary in 1938; this site was expanded and evolved into Northgate Park in later years. The park used to contain a small community center, named in honor of the Barfields, that occupied the corner of W. Lavender Ave. and Elgin St. That building burned down in the 1970’s, and its location is now occupied by a pair of tennis courts.
