Parks & Recreation


In Powell, we work hard but play hard too. The City of Powell’s Parks & Recreation Department offers the perfect environment for spending time with family, friends, and building lasting memories for our children.

Powell is home to 85 acres of parkland, a splash pad, 24 miles of interconnecting bike trails, and over 200 recreational, leisure and educational activities.

So relax, reconnect with your family, and enjoy the fun activities Powell has to offer – right in your own backyard.


Powell’s eight 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, take a swim at the Powell pool, or enjoy a refreshing treat at one of our many ice cream shops.

With soccer fields, a skate park, playgrounds and trails to connect them all, you can get wherever you need to go in Powell, while always staying close to home.

Splash Pad in Village Green Park

Cool off from the heat of the spring and summer at the Splash Pad, located in Village Green Park. The Splash Pad is open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Memorial Day through Labor Day. While you’re there, visit the solar picnic pavilion, which provides picnic tables and shade while supplying energy to the Municipal Building. The Pavilion cannot be rented out for private events. Before visiting the Splash Pad, check the City’s homepage on the website or Facebook page to see if the Splash Pad is open or closed.
