This 18 acres of open space has been the focal point for most of the fort's existence and has served many purposes over the years.

Geographically, the Parade Ground separated officers' quarters from enlisted barracks and utilitarian buildings. This field was used for military ceremonies, parades, drill practice, and field days. In addition, it served as the fort's football and baseball fields.

Today, the Parade Ground is used for special events, National Guard training exercises, sports, and other public recreation.
