Glenwood Park


Immersed within an Oak Hickory Forest, with over 150 years of history in their roots, sets Glenwood Park. Among 22 acres of rolling hills and towering trees one can enjoy the escape found in enveloping themselves in the natural calm and wonder of the outdoors. Glenwood park hosts a variety of opportunities that set the stage for events such as a family celebration or environmental education based school outing to a tranquil stroll through natural green space. Glenwood Park plays host to the opening nine holes of the Everwood Disc Golf course, a volleyball net, a playground, several picnic areas, the Glenwood Stone Shelter, and several geocaches varying in size and difficulty.

Glenwood Stone Shelter

Since 1938, the Glenwood Stone Shelter has stood as an icon in the center of Glenwood Park. This two story shelter has served as the focal point for a wide array of special occasions. Amenities within the Stone Shelter include electricity, lighting, public restrooms, two permanent grill structures, picnic tables, and garbage receptacles.
