Howard Smith Community Park is located on Bumgarner Road, about a quarter mile off Madison Ave. between Red Bud Ave. and Summeadow Drive.

Croxdale Park

Offers a pavilion for picnics, meetings, a playground for the kids, and plenty of trees to shade you on those hot days in July. It is found on the north side of town behind the TA truck stop on Airport Road. The park includes swings, baby swings, slides, covered picnic tables, rest rooms, and a large grassy area.
