City Parks

There are three parks within the city limits, with City Park located at Third and Main. This is the largest park with facilities for picnics and barbecues, public restrooms, as well as a large playground area with newly added equipment for the children. Many family and class reunions have taken place here over the years.

Everett Rowden Park is nestled into a residential area at Tenth and West City Limits. This park also includes a picnic shelter with barbecue grills and plenty of open room for a game of Frisbee or tag. Playground equipment includes a basketball court and the old-fashioned merry-go-round and some swings. This park was dedicated to Everett Rowden, a former City Superintendent, in 1987.

Smith Pioneer Park is located at Eighth and Main and provides a welcoming atmosphere with a central gazebo and sitting benches for those who enjoy the serenity of nature. The gazebo has been used in the past as the stage for a summer wedding. This park was donated by Aldora (Smith) Parsons and family, the previous resident of this lot. rn
