The park is an intricate circus themed play space exploding with color and creative jungle gyms. The park also doubles as a skate park,a disc golf course, and a half mile loop for joggers and runners. Payne Park has one particularly populated summertime feature: the splash area.
Located downtown, this park is home to a playground safe for toddlers along with a main playground capturing the interest of kids of all ages. Climb on the circus animals stationed around the playground, slide down slides to catch the wind, run through the misting circles, and jump around in the splash area to rid you of the heat.
Payne Park has a café right next to the skate park with an outside patio to enjoy your meal. The park hours are Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
