Eastside Park

Park hours: 7AM to 11PM

Eastside Park covers over 50 acres and includes two lakes stocked with fish. The beautifully manicured grounds have several sheltered sites for picnics and gatherings.

Two enclosed buildings provide perfect settings for reunions and receptions. The screened-in pavilion has picnic tables for approximately 200 people. The community building is completely enclosed with restroom and kitchen facilities, and can accommodate approximately 300 people. Both are available by reservation.

Other facilities at Eastside Park include a bandstand, a large playground area, and a war memorial called "The Hill of Heroes".

Each July 4th the Parks and Recreation Department hosts a July 4th celebration. Also each Christmas the Parks and Recreation Department hangs about 40,000 Christmas lights among the trees at Eastside Park, creating a winter wonderland that folks drive many miles to visit.
