Hillside Park Improvements

Hillside Park Sign

Overview

Hillside Park is located on Squak Mountain and home to both Upper and Lower Cemeteries. The 44-acre park is mostly forested with an open, grassy 2-acre area that serves as a neighborhood park. The site currently contains a backstop, picnic tables, trash cans and trails, and is the City's only "walk-in" park.
