Antioch Park

Antioch Park is JCPRD's oldest and most popular park, attracting up to 700,000 visitors each year. Purchased in 1956 and opened in 1958, the 44-acre park includes amenities such as the two fishing lakes, walking paths, tennis courts, picnic shelters, basketball court, restrooms, the historic Dodge Town play area, and playground. Over three miles of paved walking trails wind through the park.
