The city believes that parks are important to the community. Presently the city has Moseley Park, Pine Grove Park, Kirksey Park, England Park, and Lincoln Park. Mosely Park is the older of the parks with walking trails, baseball, tennis, basket ball, and tot lot. Pine Grove is primarily a small community park with basket ball and tot lot. England is the location of the Blue Eye Creek Walking Trail and Kirksey is a tot lot and baseball field, while Lincoln Park is the newest and supports a full compliment of baseballl fields and soccer along with two tot lots.
