Parks and Recreation

Dickinson County is a beautiful place to live. In addition to charming communities with historic homes and tree lined streets, there is an abundance of parks, sports complexes, swimming pools, trails and outdoor spaces, perfect for families and those who enjoy outdoor recreation.

The Dwight Eisenhower Presidential Museum and parks create a central area for residents to enjoy being outdoors. There is Little Ike Park where visitors can see an intricately designed statue of the youthful president and in Eisenhower Park there is a lovely rose garden, pool, fountain, skatepark, and sports facilities.

Avid and recreational golfers can spend the day enjoying the sunshine and striving for that elusive hole-in-one in one of the county’s three golf courses. In Chapman, the Indian Hills Golf Course is open to the public, beautiful, and also has a new clubhouse with a fitness center.

In the summer, the Central Kansas Free Fair is one not to miss. It is the largest in the state. This family-friendly event offers educational activities and entertainment for all ages, including the Wild Bill Hickok PRCA Rodeo, which has been frequently voted one of the top outdoor rodeos.
