City of Woodstock Parks Overview
Dupree Park is Woodstock's oldest park and is home to 18 holes of Disc Golf on the Prodigy Par2 Challenge, has 2 open fields to fly kites, play pick up games with friends, picnic, or just relax. The fields are bordered with a 1/3 mile walking track, includes an outdoor fitness station, shaded pavilion, and a restroom.
Other amenities include a large multi-level playground with restrooms, 2 basketball courts, a fishing pond with boardwalk and dock, 2 pickleball courts, 2 tennis courts, and a community orchard.
Little River Park is in the master planning phase. The plan for the park is to include miles of paved, boardwalk, and natural trails, in addition to an ADA playground, trail play, pavilions, fishing, outdoor learning, greenspace, disc golf, plenty of hiking, park office and visitor center, and access to the Little River and Greenprints Trail System.
Springfield Park is maintained and available for passive recreational use. It is the site of a future trailhead connecting to Rubes Creek Trail and Serenade Trail, and will provide access to the Greenprints Trail System and Downtown Loop.
The playground is designed to be a natural area that incorporates elements and textures from the landscape. The playground will include an ADA accessible boardwalk to enter the site from the corner of Market and Maple streets, leading to an accessible play area. This area includes elements meant to engage users with music and building pieces. A natural path will lead from there through hammocks and tables to another play area that includes a 20-foot-tall Jungle Explorer Dome designed for children ages to 5-12 to interact in different ways with the structure. Additional features include climbing mounds and tunnels through earthen berms.
Olde Rope Mill Park is located just north of the Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta in Woodstock. The Park is home to the Taylor Randahl Memorial Mountain Bike Trails and other trails for hiking. Other activities include fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding, park benches, picnic areas, decks, and swings overlooking Little River, and a rock pavilion.
There are historical markers highlighting the history of the area. The Rope Mill produced cotton ropes in the 1800s. It and the gristmills were powered by water flowing through Little River, Noonday Creek, and Etowah River.
Woofstock Park is Woodstock Georgia's large and small breed dog park. Woofstock is home to the Towne Lake Pass and Noonday Creek Trailheads.
Woofstock Park is constructed on the former site of the Walden Chase apartment complex that was destroyed as a result of flooding in September 2009. The City of Woodstock was able to purchase the property with a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA. The terms of the FEMA grant stipulate that anything constructed on the property reflect the fact that the land is in a floodway or floodplain. The City Council approved the concept of using the property as a dog park in 2010.
The Park at City Center is right in the center of Downtown Woodstock. The upper park features a lovely gazebo, ample benches, and a picturesque fountain. It also houses the Woodstock War Memorial and a 9/11 Memorial featuring two 12 foot sections of track from the subway station beneath the World Trade Center. The lower section of the park is home to the Northside Hospital-Cherokee Amphitheater.
