PETSAFE DOG PARK

Within Tommy Schumpert Park are two off-leash areas comprising the PetSafe Dog Park. The 30-pound and under area allows smaller dogs to mingle together while the second fenced area is open to dogs of any size. The small-dog park is a mix of grass and mulch along with people benches. The “all sizes” dog area has a mulched walking trail and a pond with a dock.

DISC GOLF

This very technical 18-hole course is played in the woods with short and long tees, and some elevation changes. Recently renovated from 9-hole course to a full 18-holes, which including the addition of good brick teepads. The course can vary in difficulty, with two tees and two baskets per hole. The longest hole is 1,200 feet from the basket, and 15 of the 18 holes are in the woods.
