Powell’s seven award-winning parks offer something for everyone. You can play a game of tennis, basketball, or cheer your child’s baseball team to victory. You can hike the nature trails, fish, or try your hand at horseshoe. Or you can enjoy a picnic lunch beneath the shade of mature trees, in a gazebo, or under a spacious park shelter.
From our parks, you can walk or bike to historic downtown Powell, pick up a book at the local library, or enjoy a refreshing treat at one of our many ice cream shops. With soccer fields, a skate park, and playgrounds, with trails to connect them all, you can get wherever you need to go in Powell while always staying close to home.
