Playground Equipment and Picnic Tables

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.

A nice deck with picnic tables is located near the caboose, built as an Eagle Scout project.

Disk (Frisbee) Golf Course

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.

Winfield Park History

Ivan K. Hill Park, consisting of approximately 60 acres, was first begun in the mid-1960's when the Winfield City Council, seeing the need for recreational opportunities, created the Winfield Park and Recreation Board and set aside land for the creation of the park. Over the years, the size of the park has increased as has the number of facilities and programs. Local, volunteer participation by citizens who wished to see more recreational opportunities like those available in larger communities, has been the backbone of the park since its beginning. A volunteer park board still exists as does the commitment by the City of Winfield to provide recreational opportunities for all ages.
