City of Park Hills Parks

The City of Park Hills Parks & Recreation Department oversees several area parks and facilities, which are frequented by residents of both communities. The largest and most utilized of the area’s parks is Columbia Park, which houses a public swimming pool, four shelters, a gazebo, a chapel, picnic facilities, an outdoor amphitheater and a lighted walking trail. The Park Hills Sports Complex is also bustling with activity, featuring one baseball field, two regulation-sized softball fields and two child-sized softball fields. It serves as the home field for Central High School’s baseball and softball teams. The complex also features an indoor horseshoe arena, a full-sized basketball court, a tennis court and two handball courts. The Lewis Street Lions Park, Haney Park, Seventh Street Park, the Elvin’s Park and the Park Hills Veteran’s Park round out the local park sites.

Maintaining an active mind is just as important as keeping one’s body active. The Park Hills Public Library is highly employed by residents of both Park Hills and Leadington, providing a host of resources, genealogy information, Internet access and programs for patrons of all ages. The first Monday evening of each month is Genealogy Night and the summer months are set aside for the Summer Reading Program. The library also offers Learning Express, which supplies free study guides, workbooks, practice tests and videos to those preparing for vocational certificates, the GED exam and various other standardized tests.
