Hefley Park is a great place to enjoy serenity. The park features a small trail available for a bike ride, a nice walk or even a run.  A beautiful Pavilion is located on the west end of the park where you can enjoy a picnic among the mature trees.  

At the center of the park is a memorial dedicated to all the men and women who have valiantly risked their lives for our freedom.  Our community takes great pride in this memorial.
