Central Park

Central Park is a 11-acre community park located in downtown Manhattan. Central Park was the Park District’s first developed park, purchased in 1960 for $4,000 with funds generated by community fundraising efforts. Central Park features both passive and active recreation opportunities and is home to the new Splash Pad and community-wide events, including our Sip of Summer concerts.

The park features a pond with a recently restored shoreline and planted with native vegetation, pavilions, newly renovated restrooms, athletic courts and fields, a playground, and a walking path connected to the Wauponsee Trail.
