The largest city park is Nichols Park. It was originally laid out in the 1900s and a 17-acre lake used as a water supply source for the community. Now it provides a wide number of recreational activities.

One of the most recent additions for family recreation is the splash pad and new playground equipment at McCutcheon Park. That park is located at the intersection of North Eighth Street and Warren Road.

Tucked away on South Fourth Street is the Rotary Club Park that gives neighborhood children a place to play.

Along Main Street are the Cowboy Heritage and Veterans parks.

Skateboard enthusiasts can be seen just about every day during the summer and evenings during spring and fall showing off their techniques at the skateboard park just south of Main Street next to Lake Drive.jim hall lake
