OUTDOOR BASKETBALL AND TENNIS COURTS

We have a full court outdoor basketball court.  You may come into the recreation lobby and rent a basketball to go outside and shoot hoops.  You must present a valid city ID to rent a basketball.  We also have 2 regulation size tennis courts.  We do not offer any equipment for tennis.  You must bring your own.  

***NO SOCCER IS ALLOWED ON EITHER OUTDOOR COURT***

18 HOLE DISC GOLF COURSE

The recreation department is fortunate enough to now have and 18 hold disc golf course that runs from the main entrance all the way around to the back of the park.  Until the last couple of years we only had room for a 9 hole disc golf course.  Volunteers from the area took on a major project by removing dead and fallen trees as well as clearing out the underbrush to make room for 9 new holes.  The expansion of our disc golf course now incorporates most of what used to be the nature trail.  Discs are available in the recreation office to rent.  There is NO CHARGE to play disc golf.

Ross Park has a very large picnic area with a small playground covered under the canopy of the trees.  There are picnic tables on cement slabs that park visitors can use to have a birthday party, a small get together with friends or family or just a small relaxing picnic.  Along with the picnic area is a small playground equipped with a slide, swings and climbing dome.  There is no fee to rent a space.  It is first come, first serve.
