Hardin Park is located at the junction of the Luce Line Trail and Wurzer Trail and has a small shelter, a bike repair station conveniently located near the trails, playground equipment, a basketball court, and a tennis/pickleball court.  Dexter Park has a small shelter, a basketball court and playground equipment, and is located in a great spot to serve the surrounding higher density residential area in that part of town.  For more information on each park, please click on the buttons provided.
