City Center Park is another recreational area that is ideal for escaping the worst of the heat. It has some areas where you can work up a sweat, like the walking trails or basketball courts, but it also has a splash pad. The splash pad will remain open for the rest of the summer. There’s a nearby shelter you can rent in case you want to host a cookout before summer is officially over, too.

This is a great place to come during any season because it’s all housed indoors. The Greenwood Fieldhouse does require an entrance fee, but there are day passes for a reasonable $5 or $6 depending on age, children under 3 are free, and residents are able to purchase punch cards, monthly passes, or annual passes. Inside the fieldhouse, you can enjoy an indoor track, turf fields, golf simulators, batting cages, and much more.
