In 1981, four acres of land were purchased from Dale Severin for a park and ball field which would be located southwest of the cemetery, adjacent to the northwest corner of the Village. The Village purchased the land with the help of different fund-raisers, sponsored by several community organizations.
During the 1980's after land was acquired for the Hallam Community Park, the community again united to develop the ball field, and establish a community park. The ball field was graded; chain link fences, backstop, and dugouts were erected. Grass was started in the outfield, and ball field lights and a lighted scoreboard were installed. A new concession stand with indoor restrooms was constructed. Playground equipment, a picnic shelter, and planting of trees provided for great recreational additions, also. In the course of just a couple of years, Hallam Booster Club spearheaded fund raising efforts which contributed nearly $16,000 for the lighting fund. In the spring of 1995 new playground equipment was installed by the Hallam Booster Club.
Repairs, improvements, and many new trees were planted at the Hallam Community Park and Ball Field after damage by the 2004 tornado. Later on, a batting cage was set up. In 2012, a splash pad was installed with the help of several volunteers from the community and is in service during the summer months. The Hallam Community Park is open to the public daily from 6 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
