Visit Woodstock Parks to Achieve 2020 Fitness Goals

Written by Stacy Brown

Happy 2020! The parks in Woodstock are a great place to work toward your fitness-related New Year’s resolutions.

Dupree Park is located on Neese Road, just south of Arnold Mill Road. It features a large playground, a disc golf course, four tennis courts, a pickleball court, two basketball courts, one-quarter mile walking trail, one-third mile paved walking path with fitness stations, and a family mountain bike trail. Dupree Park also has a boardwalk and a floating dock, which are perfect for fishing in the beautiful pond.

Northside Hospital Cherokee Amphitheater is in the heart of downtown Woodstock. Home to the popular Woodstock Summer Concert Series, the venue regularly boasts a crowd of over 7,500 guests. Amphitheater programs include a monthly fitness series (AMPED in the Park), Music Mondays in May, and Sunset Symphony.

Olde Rope Mill Park is at the end of Rope Mill Road. This park features multiple mountain bike and multiuse trails, park benches, picnic tables, pavilion with grill, and a scenic overlook/fishing platform. Olde Rope Mill Park is home to the Taylor Randahl Memorial Mountain Bike Trail, which has 14 miles of connecting trails that twist through nearly 100 acres of public park land. A pedestrian/bike bridge connects the south side of Little River to the north side where visitors can see the remnants of an 1800s rope mill.

Woofstock Park, Woodstock’s own dog park, is located on Dupree Road. Get in shape with your four-legged friends. The park features separate large and small breed off-leash areas, shade structures, water fountains, benches, and restrooms. The trailhead to Noonday Creek Trail and Towne Lake Pass Trail is also located here.

The Elm Street Playground (Coming Soon!) will be located on Market Street next to the Elm Street Event Green in downtown Woodstock. The area will have boardwalks and natural play features that will blend into the wooded surroundings.

In addition to parks, there are miles of fantastic trails in Woodstock. Paved loops like the Wellstar Community Health Trail at Woodstock Elementary School and wide, multiuse trails like the Noonday Creek Trail, the Towne Lake Pass Trail, the Rubes Creek Trail, and the Trestle Rock Trail are great options for walking, jogging, or biking.
