PARKS & RECREATION

Sloan Park

Nestled in the foothills of the Central Piedmont of North Carolina, Sloan Park offers the ideal passive recreational opportunity for families, schools, church groups, service organizations, and businesses.  With 100 acres of green space, 3 miles of trails, 5 picnic shelters, volleyball courts, a softball diamond, playground, and historic gristmill, Sloan Park provides a peaceful respite for all.

Several special features exist at Sloan Park. The Henry W. Culp, Jr. Famous and Historic Tree Trail provides a half mile journey through our nations past. The Sloan Nature Trail is about a half mile walk through some of the forested area of the park and offers a pleasant walk among some magnificent hardwoods. There is a loop segment off this trail that leads the hiker higher on a back ridge and a short connector that leads to the restrooms. The Crawdad Trail is another park trail roughly a half mile long along the banks of Fred's Pond and a small stream, complete with a covered bridge. Don's Gazebo offers an outdoor setting for weddings and concerts.  The Alice Stanback Monument Forest provides a lovely garden setting where living monuments in the form of trees and flower beds allow patrons to honor a loved one.  Last, but not least, is Kerr Mill, an 1823 grist mill that houses a museum of Early Americana.
