A recent addition to the city park is the Fantasy Forest Playground, a wooden structure play area offering new and innovative opportunities for area children.

Another addition to the park is a brand new performance shell. Each summer the Clinton County Arts Council hosts a summer Music in the Park series. The performances are held at the performance shell on Wednesday evenings and are free to the public.
