McKinley Park A relaxing life-style in harmony with nature and the true spirit of Cambridge is reflected on the 50 beautiful acres of McKinley Park. Mature swaying Cottonwoods create an umbrella of shade out across the great lawn, inviting visitors to experience Cambridge's "Field of Dreams" ... a playground for all ages.

Enjoy a variety of fun-filled family activities, Vintage horse swings, a modern playground set in a one-acre sandbox, tennis courts, a sand volleyball area, baseball diamonds, paved walking trails and a swimming pool are some of the park's features.

The landscape of a formal flower garden adds a variety of color to the natural settings of the area, and the charming footbridge provides a scenic overlook of the park area.

You can easily spend a day on the scenic Medicine Creek that runs along the edge of the park with out-of-the-way picnic areas, fishing spots, camping areas or just walk in the woods. Call for campground information.
