The City of Perry maintains two public parks available for family fun, recreation and community events. Both Jubilee Park and Veterans’ Memorial Park may also be reserved/rented for family events.
The Parks Committee is in the process of upgrading both of the parks with hopes of obtaining/upgrading playground equipment, installing new horseshoe pits and a new shuffleboard (at Jubilee Park). Other enhancements in discussion are installation of a splash pad and a walking trail with exercise stations positioned along the trail.
Jubilee Park, located at the west end of Third street, south of the railroad tracks, is a hidden treasure, equipped with playground equipment, a pavilion with picnic tables, restrooms (open upon request) and a softball field. The George Dunn Fitness Path is currently in progress.
Veterans’ Memorial Park surrounds Perry City Hall, located at 203 West Polly Street, on the north side of the railroad tracks. This park is equipped with a softball field, soccer field, sledding hill and pavilion with picnic tables and restrooms. It is also enhanced with Veterans’ Circle, a display of flags honoring the United States of America, POWs (Prisoners of War), and each of the military branches.
The Perry Parks and Property Committee is pleased to let the community know that we now have a Free Sled Library at Mudge Knob (sledding hill), southwest of city hall. Borrow a sled and return when done.
We are asking for donations of gently used sleds. If you’d like to donate a sled, simply put it in the sled library located near the sledding hill sign.
We appreciate your donation, happy sledding!
