A beautiful evergreen-lined lane at the south end of Magnolia Avenue welcomes you to this 85 acre park where benches line the bank of the South River which meanders through the park. Ridgeview Park is open from sunrise to sunset and offers a variety of great settings for picnics and family fun. The park has something for everyone… fishing, wheelchair accessible fishing pier, several ball-fields, an amphitheater, a creative playground, soccer fields, tennis courts, a basketball court, beautiful gardens, and a walking or jogging trail.
Young family members will enjoy a large, creative play area. Fishermen should take note that the South River is a good place to fish. Bass, perch, bluegill, catfish and even trout can be found within its waters.
