Mission Statement: The Battlefield Advisory Park Board seeks to provide parks, pathways, and programs that are safe, accessible, innovative, and fun for our growing community. All the while, maintaining that quaint, small-town feeling for all our residents and visitors.
At the Cherokee Trail of Tears Park, which is located next to City Hall, there are two playground areas with play equipment appropriate for toddlers and older children. Our newest playground area is all-inclusive for those with limited mobility. A paved walking trail provides a half mile loop around the entire park that is illuminated at night. There is one tennis court, four pickleball courts, a basketball court, a fitness court, a small pond with gazebo, and a pavilion with picnic tables. Both our pond and pavilion areas are available for rent. Hours and court lighting for the park vary with the season.
In addition to the Cherokee Trail of Tears Park, the City also has The Butterfield Stage Park, which is a quaint "pocket-park" on Old Wire Road, just south of Weaver Road. It also has a paved walking track with benches that are illuminated at night.
