Terry Park Ballfield is an historic site in Fort Myers, Florida, United States. The park is named after the family who donated the land in the 1920s. For years the stadium hosted Major League Baseball spring training, as well as a dozen years of Florida State League baseball.

The stadium remained in its 1925 condition until 1943, when it was destroyed in a fire. In 1955, the park was rebuilt. This time, instead of wood, the stadium was made from steel and concrete. In 2004, the stadium was heavily hit by Hurricane Charley, with damage from the storm causing the grandstand to be labeled unsafe.
