ENJOY LEGACY PARK
Things to Do
As your 77 acre oasis in the city, Legacy Park is alive with recreational, environmental, cultural, and community possibilities.
If you’ve come to love the park, we look forward to seeing you back. And for those unfamiliar, we extend our invitation to drop by any time.
Looking for options? Consider some of these:
Legacy Park is a haven for wildlife of all kinds — otters, beavers, bunnies, coyotes, waterfowl, owls, birds of all kinds, and more. Come explore the property and make yourself some new friends!
Get Lost in the Woods
22 acres of Legacy Park, including the forest, Postal Pond, wetlands, and an extensive trail network, are protected in perpetuity from any form of development. Venture forth and lose yourself in the songs of nature.
Explore the Kitchen Garden
Decatur’s Kitchen Garden is a project of Global Growers, a not-for-profit organization offering a unique gardening space for refugees and immigrants.

We’ve got multiple picnic tables scattered around Legacy Park’s main campus. Grab one for a picnic or visit us Tuesday evenings in May and September for our weekly Truckin’ Tuesdays food truck events.
