Picture From McFarland Park HarborWe have an abundance of recreation activities for our residents and our visitors.

It seems that there's a place for just about anything you consider fun, whether that be a day of fishing, a game of tennis or golf, a long walk along a scenic trail, or an organized game of basketball or softball.

The City of Florence, Alabama, has recreation opportunities that are the envy of cities twice our size.

Florence also has some of the most beautiful parks in the nation! Cities many times our size do not have near the amount of green space as we do!

Please take a moment to take a visit some of our parks & facilities. Afterwards, take your family out for a stroll and see for yourself what you have been missing!

Almost all of our parks can be used for special events such as birthday parties and other functions. Reservations of shelters can be made.
