City parks are perfect for relaxing and recreation

Church Street Park

Did you know the City of Fayetteville has six parks open to the public?

Looking for a nice place to take a walk, play on a playground, ride a mountain bike or even catch a fish? Parks featuring all of this and more are located right here in Fayetteville.

If you are trying to keep the kids happy, you may want to start with Church Street Park, which features new playground equipment, including four basketball goals, swings, slides and even a gazebo donated from the set of the 2017 film “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, which was filmed at nearby Pinewood Atlanta Studios.

The Ridge Nature Area at the end of Burch Road offers miles and miles of trails, most of which make for great hiking and mountain biking.

Veterans Park on Redwine Road features a gentle walking path as well as monumental tributes to our nation’s military veterans. It is located next to the Fayette County-run Kiwanis Park.

Three lesser-known parks include Dickson Springs Park on Helen Sams Parkway, which offers two fishing ponds at the end of a short hiking trail; May Harp Park, which is located just above the

Hwy. 54 intersection along North Jeff Davis Drive; and Jack Day Park, which is located in Downtown Fayetteville and consists of the land on which the new Lane Brown Gazebo was built.
