Gale A. Fields Recreation Center, located in Embree Park in southeast Garland, is named after Gale A. Fields, who was born April 23, 1928, and served as the director of the Lou Huff Recreation Center for 31 years. He was an active member of Garland civic organizations, including the Rainbow Estates Neighborhood Association and the Garland East Area Plan Implementation committee. On March 7, 2000, the city broke ground in Embree Park to begin building the Gale A. Fields Recreation Center.
