Welcome to your backyard – all 900 acres of it. Our 20 community parks are more than open spaces; they’re invitations to gather, catch a live concert, toss a Frisbee, swing in a hammock. Delightfully detailed and wonderfully energizing.
This 1.5-acre village green features a formal lawn (for not-so-formal fun), mini-amphitheater and terraced seating walls. Play catch. Have a picnic. Jam out to endless summer concerts.
Your personal glimpse into Briar Chapel’s history with whimsical wildlife mosaics, massive reclaimed boulders and a quaintly preserved historic fence.
Fire pits. Bocce ball. Horseshoe rings. Think summer hotdogs, fall s’mores and impromptu family hangouts on the lush grassy lawns.
Fido’s new playground! Our fenced-in pooch park offers open running space and unfettered playtime for our four-legged friends – both big and small. Frisbees welcome. Tail-wagging encouraged. Pet stations are available for cleanup.
Calling all green thumbs … and aspiring green thumbs. One of two community gardens, Briar Patch is a gardener’s paradise – blossoms and saplings, warm sun and rows of fresh earth for raising fresh, seasonal food. The backdrop? Flitting hummingbirds and Metamorphosis, a custom sculpture that depicts a caterpillar’s transformation into a butterfly.
New day, new adventure every time! Featuring relaxing hammocks, a fossil dig area, outdoor art and historical features, Discovery Park overlooks Briar Chapel neighborhood 6 North.
Great Meadow Park:
A five-acre linear park, Great Meadow connects six neighborhoods and the trail system to one thriving hub. Summer concerts and food festivals take center stage in the outdoor amphitheater. Pinterest-themed parties and impromptu picnics unfold at the open-air pavilion. Afternoons hold infinite adventures on the volleyball courts, outdoor ping-pong tables, outdoor exercise equipment, playgrounds, a sand play area, historic barn and a dog park for Fido.
Go on. Get starry eyed. Sitting atop a hill, Constellation Park allows the night sky to showcase its natural dazzling light. The park features a viewer for a more focused look at the moon and stars, landscaping in the shape of constellations and pads to set up a telescope.
