Nixon Park, 175 E. Park Avenue

Nixon Park is 14.5 acres and located at 175 E. Park Avenue. The park is home to the Splash Pad, ice rink, and Fine Arts Center. A pond fed by the Bark River provides hours of fishing enjoyment for everyone. A handicapped accessible pathway winds along the river bank and around the pond. It is a great place to picnic and play. Pathways at the southeast corner of the park connect with a path around Mill Place subdivision or a path along Maple Avenue.
