Friendship Park is an excellent place for athletes and the fitness-minded. They have four well-groomed baseball diamonds and 2 full-size soccer fields. There are miles of fitness trails around the facility. The trails aren’t only paths in the woods. They are laid out with soft wood chips and marked. There are even maps that dot the trails to tell you distances between points so you can measure the distance traveled on a workout. The trails are both beautiful and convenient.
Families with small children will naturally be drawn to the huge, recently renovated Dragon’s Den Playground located near the Friendship Park Pavillion. It’s expansive and supersedes what most playscapes at other parks offer. The Pavilion itself is also impressive. Friendship Park boasts indoor bathrooms, a family bathroom, rentable meeting rooms, shelter and kitchen area.
There are plenty of other attractions that make Friendship Park special. They have the historic Porritt Barn and a beautiful gazebo for weddings located near the barn.
