With over 30 acres of naturally cultivating green space, Everly Park is a perfect opportunity to escape the hustle and grind of the day. Located in Everly Park are four shelter houses fully prepared to make any celebration or random occasion a special day to remember.  Amenities are also available to enjoy a beautiful day by the Everly Pond. Stocked with a variety of fish for any level of angler, the pond side seating and fishing stages provide for any angle a trawler might desire. Throughout the park one can enjoy a variety of recreation and leisure opportunities as well. Everly park has three volleyball nets located near three of our shelters, the NEW Lion's Pride Playground, the back nine of the Everwood Disc Golf Course (the front nine are located in Glenwood Park, just east of Everly Park), Everly Ball Diamond, and several Geocaches throughout the park varying in size and difficulty.
