The Ivan K. Hill Recreational Park has begun construction of a new "all inclusive” playground that has multiple play areas for children of all ability levels. The playground will also have an ADA wheelchair platform swing.

Playground equipment and picnic tables are located throughout the park. In addition, a caboose and army tank (exterior restored) are centrally located along the main park thoroughfare. The caboose exterior was re-painted in the fall of 2007 and work continues on the interior of the caboose. A nice deck with picnic tables is located near the caboose, built as an Eagle Scout project.
Nestled along the banks of the Luxapallila River on the park's east side, this nine-hole course (par 32) is approximately 1/2 mile in length and is situated in a well-shaded, flat area with tree trunks and low-hanging branches as the primary obstacles. Disk golf is great fun for the whole family, great exercise and a low-cost family outing. The course was built as an Eagle Scout project and the first tee is behind the Lion's Club pavilion.
