Long’s Park has everything you need for a day of fun in the sun. There are picnic pavilions, petting farms, and children’s playgrounds with slides to climb on. And if all else fails, there is always the three acre spring fed lake full of fish! When Judge Henry Long and his daughter Catherine Long gave this land to the city, they never could have imagined how much fun it would be for families.
Now, it has become one great park with beautiful flowers in every hue you can imagine! There are many activities to take part in at the park, including free music series and an art festival. You can also enjoy a world-renowned chicken barbecue! Long’s Park is a bustling urban oasis that offers residents everything from picnic pavilions to tennis courts. The three-acre lake provides opportunities for fishing and swimming, while children can enjoy the child safety fences surrounding their playgrounds. Those looking to make use of the fitness trails can freely walk or run along these paths too.
