Cowley County offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities. Good parks, playgrounds and recreation facilities are important to the general health, happiness, and welfare of our citizens. We pride ourselves in our progressive approach to improving and maintaining our numerous parks. Arkansas City recently added new hiking and biking trails and Winfield's new Broadway Sports Complex project offers lighted fields for baseball, softball, football and soccer. Both have recently completed renovations to their Fitness Centers, promoting an aggressive approach to the wellness of their citizens. Wellness classes and various team sports abound throughout the year for both youth and adults.
Arkansas City and Winfield both offer public and private golf courses. Spring Hill Golf Course as well as the challenging Arkansas City Country Club Golf Course are located in Arkansas City. The Arkansas City Country Club offers an on-staff golf pro, as well as a pro-shop and private cart storage, and a swimming pool. Quail Ridge Golf Course in Winfield is ranked as one of the state's top municipal courses and is a valuable asset to the community. Since opening in 1992, Quail Ridge has received a 3 1/2 star rating from Golf Digest in the "Places to Play" Southwest edition. The Winfield Country Club features a beautiful, well-maintained and manicured 18-hole private course. Other amenities include a pro-shop and private cart storage, full dining facility, racquetball court, and swimming pool.
The Winfield Aquatics Center, newly opened in 1998, is a full-size competitive eight-lane, 50-meter pool, with two diving boards and zero depth entry. Special features are the 120 ft. swirl slide, and the separate youth pool with its very own "Serpn Dipity" slide. The Arkansas City Recreation Commission is now adding a new water slide and making other improvements to its pool at Paris Park, which is the second largest community swimming pool in Kansas. Indoor swimming is also available at the Arkansas City High School and at Southwestern College.
