Dogwood Park offers a playground area, picnic tables scattered throughout the park, one picnic pavilion, one basketball court, two horseshoe pits, a rental hall, restroom facilities, and wooded areas for walking and exploring.
Took my kids there for the first time today. Nice pool, very clean. The problem is the ridiculous swimming test that they make kids take in order to swim in the deep end. My son is 12. He is taller then me and has been swimming literally his entire life. So while he swam across the pool in less then 30 seconds without breaking a sweat, the life guard said she could not pass him because she felt his arms did not come out of the water far enough when he took a breath, that his form was not perfect. I understand wanting to make sure that a child can hold their own while swimming, I appreciate that. But to require kids to pass a test that 95% of adults could not pass if asked is ridiculous. To nit-pick their form to the point of... "well you could not be a professional swimmer so you can't jump off the diving board"... is absurd. Two other families complained as well, one of which left because one of their kids (who clearly could swim) did not pass because he was not "kicking his feet fast enough". I mean... what?!?!? My son could not even go down the rinky dink little slide because he did not have a green band without me standing at the bottom of it... he could touch at the bottom of the slide! The water came up no higher then his chest! We will not be going back. You charge $9 a person and then don't let kids that can obviously swim swim where they want. We will go to clear water where they actually let kids that know how to swim... ya know... swim!
As a city park, it's fine. It rises far above the rest when you factor in the newly remodeled city pool and an indoor facility capable of holding parties and reunions.
We got a family pass to the park this summer newly renovated pool great place for the family to hang out love it.

Park is small, but it does have a pool and a small skatepark nearby. Should you be a student at the high school, it would be easier to be picked up here.
Have been a member the past 3 years. Great place for the family
