The city’s largest park, McElroy Park, covers just over 63 acres of land and features one of the city’s most extraordinary attractions; White Cloud, the only living albino buffalo in the nation. It also houses many unique birds like the American Tree Sparrow and dozens of outdoor activities.
No matter the season, there’s always something to do with a skateboarding park, playground, picnic area, outdoor skating and warming house, and many athletic fields for baseball, basketball, and volleyball. With nearly 17 miles of trails, cyclist and joggers can always find one a challenging venture.
