Anna Jean Cummings Park (AJC Park) in Soquel, California—also known by some as "Blue Ball Park" for the public art work of four 9-foot blue spheres—is a 96-acre park offering a wide range of activities and facilities for all ages serving the surrounding neighborhoods, the local community, and the county of Santa Cruz. Established in 2001, it includes playing fields for soccer and baseball, picnic benches and pavilions, open space walking trails, and playgrounds.
The Friends of Anna Jean Cummings Park works to preserve the parks assets as envisioned in the Park Master Plan, with special attention to its open space trails and natural habitats, which contains a number of endangered species.
