I grew up on Auburn Street in Rosedale Park, with Stopel right at the end of my block, on the corner of Outer Drive and Evergreen.
Anyone else who grew up in my neighborhood remember the little colorful buildings that used to be at the park towards the front?
I was born in 1980 - and that is one of my earliest memories of the park, but the buildings were demolished when I was a little girl - and even THAT memory is vague.
Anyone remember those buildings? - or what purpose they served? I'm sure one of them was used for rest rooms or something. . .

Stoepel Park was the Spot before we fled to the burbs...
My Dad used to take my sister and me through the trails on our bikes. We BBQ'd there a few times too.

Those were restrooms. Played a lot of baseball and tennis there way back when. hockey in the Winter too. The old wading pool/basketball court was flooded to make one

They just cut the grass there today. Two more times left for this summer.
Actually, I drive by there frequently (four times today, in fact). I don't know what structures you're referring to, however. We played baseball there in the 80's, on the diamonds closer to Westwood. The tennis courts are infrequently used these days, although occasionally I see some team from somewhere out there practicing. The football field is five (six) years old (the goalposts at least) and in August the PAL teams are out there practicing, along with the cheerleaders.
With the exception of the occasional lazy asses driving their car to a picnic table (I hope they get stuck in the mud), and of course the annual tragedy of the stuffed animal memorial (people drive way too fast down Evergreen, even when the park is crowded), the park is rather sleepy and still quite pleasant.

That's one thing I remember REALLY clearly, the Pal/Pop Warner kids - namely the green & yellow team (the giants I think they were called).
Some of the kids used to always walk down my street after the games with their uniforms on, and helmets in their hand.
I also remember some nearby school that used to have a parade every year that passed right by house, down Fenkell. My mom and I used to watch them from the sidewalk in front of the house.
