Goss Park

Since 1959, Goss Park has been the local ‘go to’ spot for kids to learn how to swim and for families to enjoy the summer.  The brook-fed water features two diving boards, a floating slide, swim lanes for exercise and swim teams, and areas for people of all abilities to enjoy.  There’s also a sand volleyball court, playground, basketball and futsal courts, a baseball field, a grill, and a pavilion with a snack bar.  The park is open mid-June through late August and can be rented out for events.
