Friends of Downs Park Mission

After careful consideration and monitoring of usage, the Friends of Downs Park have decided to cancel our mobile phone service.   We want to continue providing our community and loyal followers access to all activities and upcoming events within the park.  Therefore, we ask that you follow us on Facebook and/or our website. Thank you for your continued support.


There is much to do at Downs Park! Picnic areas, playground, paved trails, nature trails, fishing, and more.

Bring the whole family and even the dog! Spend a day at the Dog Beach and let your best friend swim and play.

Beautiful, outdoor weddings are held in Mother's Garden at Downs Park. Also, learn about the Adopt-An-Owl program.
