Description

Available for rental, Twin Hickory Recreation Center is the perfect setting for a small to medium group event. A variety of classes and events are offered for both children and adults throughout the year. A small playground is located on site.

Twin Hickory Park opened in July 2014. Park features include walking trails, open play areas, multi-purpose field, landscaping, irrigation, a picnic shelter with restrooms, a playground for ages 2-5 and one for ages 6-12.  The most unique characteristic of the park is the “sprayground,” a small, whimsical, zero-depth water play feature intended for children 12 or under with adult supervision.

*The large shelter at Twin Hickory Park is not available for reservations.
