Parks and Trails are Good for Everyone

Huntington is home to some beautiful parks and a growing network of trails. Thanks to strong public support and effective planning, the city has maintained its public spaces and laid the groundwork for some major improvements.

  • The Memorial Park Veterans Memorial is a dramatic, fitting, and inspiring tribute to Huntington County veterans.  It  features a refurbished T-33 airplane and Sherman Tank as well as flags representing all branches of the armed forces of the United States.  A one of a kind Purple Heart Memorial has been erected  by a group of area citizens to honor those killed or injured in our nation’s service.  A complete set of bronze plaques honors Huntington County veterans who were killed serving in our Armed Forces.
  • The Memorial Park Court Sports Complex includes two new basketball courts, three new tennis courts and three new pickleball courts. Also completed was a major rehab of our well-used and well-worn horseshoe pits.
  • Our new Rotary Centennial Park is located at the intersection of Park Drive and Jefferson Street at the north entrance to downtown.  This gateway park provides a beautiful entrance to our downtown.  Features include a large, ornate four-sided clock, flag feature, fountain, greenspace,  seating, and parking.  We are very grateful to the Huntington Rotary Club for committing $120K in private support for this beautification effort. Rotary Centennial Park is a main attraction for welcoming in the Christmas holidays.
  • The iconic pavilions at Elmwood, Laurie and Memorial Parks have been refurbished in the past 5 years.
  • Nearly  9 miles of scenic trails and greenways are available for citizens to enjoy walking and other outdoor activities.

Parks and trails are good for everyone! Take your family outside this spring and enjoy some of the beautiful green spaces that make Huntington a great place to live and work.
