Potter Park is another interesting La Junta park. It was donated to the city in the early 1930s by Hezekial W. Potter, an early settler whose family is an integral part of the La Junta story. In its early days, the La Junta Fourth-of-July fireworks displays were held here. The Koshare Dancers sometimes performed here before the Kiva was build in 1949. The Kids Rodeos were held at Potter Park for many years until nearby residents complained of the dust, odors, and noise and forced the rodeo to move.
The La Junta Little League calls Potter Park home. Today there are two baseball fields with spectator bleachers and lights for night games. In recent years the La Junta Music at the Junction event is held here.
