Our city park is the perfect place to take a break and relax. Cool off under the lush canopy of trees, have fun on the playground, or take advantage of the BBQ grills for the perfect picnic. If you listen closely, you might even hear the hooting of our resident owls. Dogs are welcome, provided that they are on leash and any waste is bagged and disposed of in the trash. The park is conveniently located on Highway 12, restrooms are open daily, and just a block from historic Main Street.
