A small covered pressbox sits atop the bleachers behind home plate. All seating at the park is aluminum bleacher seating.


More bleacher seating sits down the third base line. The backstop is short but very wide behind home plate.


The stadium's flag pole is located in a unique location, behind the first base stands. The park is part of a larger complex of athletic fields, so the flagpole is situated to serve multiple fields at once.

Picnic table seating looks out onto the field from next to the light pole in the right field corner of the park.


A covered party deck sits behind the visitor's bullpen on the first base side of the field and can overlook the main field as well as the youth fields.


The home bullpen sits just above the outfield fence for one of the youth ballfields.


The outfield fence at Lake Shawnee Park is mostly chain link fencing, but the right field wall is a taller stone wall that slopes away from the field of play.


The scoreboard sits in front of a water tower in center field.
