Cobbs Hill Park is located in the city's south east area and features 109 acres of beauty, recreation, and scenic trails. At the park's highest point, a walking trail offers one of the best views of the city. At road level, a collection of lilacs and original tree plantings makes this park a horticultural gem. During summer nights, Cobbs Hill Park bustles with players from local softball leagues.  

Washington Grove Park, just east of the Cobbs Hill Reservoir, is a breathtaking, undeveloped 100-acre sanctuary filled with large oaks and wildlife in the heart of the city. Walking trails abound and provide hikers with spectacular views. Dogs are welcome on a leash but bikes are prohibited on the trails in the park.
