Boasting 142 acres, this expansive park has a number of amenities for every member of the family including the four-legged ones that bark. The Paw Park greets you at the entrance off U.S. 36 and allows dogs to run freely off a leash for a fee. A large children’s playground serves as the centerpiece for the upper level of the park that also includes a shelter, basketball courts, picnic tables and a wooded area with walking paths surrounding a small lake. The lower level of the park includes paved biking and hiking paths, another children’s play area, splash pad, amphitheater and the Pavilion Center, a large indoor facility overlooking a lake that can be rented for large gatherings or sports banquets. The park has become a staple for cross country runners who use its trails to train or for meets.
