More About Friendly Hills Park
This park offers plenty of opportunities to stay active. Mostly notably, there's an asphalt-paved roller hockey rink so skaters can practice year-round, and a warming house and ice skating rink in the winter. The park also has a double tennis court, youth softball field, basketball half-court, and net support bases for grass volleyball. Kids can play on the playground, which was updated in 2009.
