Thomasville is a beautiful city full of some of the best parks around. Here are a few of them you should visit this summer!
Balfour Park & Thomasville Dog Park
Balfour Park is a beautiful small park located on South Pinetree Boulevard between US Highway 319 and Fletcher Street, across from Southwestern State Hospital. The park is equipped with a covered shelter, picnic tables, grill, playground equipment, tennis courts, exercise stations and restrooms. Adjacent to the park is the Thomasville Dog Park, a perfect place for your dog to safely enjoy some off-leash time! The Dog Park has three separate pens for small, medium and large dogs, each with running water. For some real exercise, your dogs can try out the Obstacle Course!
MacIntyre Park is another of Thomasville’s small parks located in a beautiful residential area. This park is particularly scenic in the spring with lots of blooms and grand old trees. You’ll find playground equipment, picnic tables and a Disc Golf Course. Disc Golf is a sport in which players throw small Frisbee-like discs from gravel “tee boxes” towards 12 metal basket “holes” scattered through the park with the goal of completing the course in as few throws as possible. You can join local enthusiasts every Saturday morning to play a toss, which is disc golf lingo for an informal tournament.
Cherokee Lake Park
Cherokee Lake Park is a beautiful little getaway located here in Thomasville. The park has a 1-mile paved walking path, a fishing lake with piers, plenty of covered picnic spots, restrooms, and a great playground. The park is also located adjacent to the Thomasville Rose Garden, which has over 1,500 rose bushes in bloom this June. It’s absolutely beautiful this time of the year!
This historic, 13-acre park was known in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s as ‘Yankee Paradise’ Park when it provided the perfect frontage to one of the town’s most glamorous Victorian hotels. Wintering northerners would enjoy the park on foot and on bicycles and would listen to famous bands play at the bandshell. The historic houses along the edges of Paradise Park can be found in the Self-Guided Tour of Historic Thomasville. The park is equipped with a playground equipment, a lighted gazebo, grills, covered shelters and picnic tables. (This park does not have restrooms.)
