Henry County Home to Many Great Parks

Summer is here and hopefully that means kids are getting along together at home and spending quality time with one another. If that’s not the case, consider taking them to one of our many places in Henry County that will let them burn off all their energy for free.

Mount Pleasant is home to Cranes Pond, East Lake park, Mapleleaf, and recreational trails, if you think a long walk might be what they need. Maybe teach them a new game in pickleball, which you can do for free at the courts at the Middle School.

Wayland has a ball field, as well as an outdoor track at the high school. If you’re in Salem, check out the ball fields on East School Street. The Winfield-Mt.Union school has a disc golf course, playground, and outdoor track, while the activity park 110 N Olive St has sand volleyball, horeshoes, a gaga ball pit, and more. The city park has ADA playground equipment, a gazebo, and walking path.

Rural Henry County has multiple parks and trails, such as the Trenton City Park, Olds park, and even Geode State Park.

Get your kids out of the house this summer and teach them about the real joys in life, which they can find right here in Henry County.
