Stilwell Community Park Features

This community park has a fence completely around the playground area allowing children of all ages to be able to run around and be safe. 

There is also a trail that’s one mile long outside of the playground area. That goes into grassland, woodlands, and wetlands.

There is a shelter with a grill just outside the fence and restrooms. Unfortunately, the only shade near the playground is the shelter house.
