If you live in Marshall, Texas, the city known as the “Cultural Capital of Texas” located on the northeast side of the state, you know that Marshall has an incredibly active, dedicated Parks and Recreation department that keeps our local park scene thriving.
According to the Parks department, the City of Marshall “continually strive to honor the past while embracing the challenges of the future, and to serve an entire community while maintaining meaningful connections with individual participants.” To the Marshall Parks department, parks are much more than trees and grass but a place for community gathering and growth.
There are eight parks in Marshall. One of them is Airport Park, a hub for baseball and softball activities in the East Texas region that contains 11 ballfields and two batting cages across 47 acres. Lions Park is also a sports center with basketball courts and ballfields as well as picnic pavilions and playgrounds.
City Park is Marshall’s premier park and is often visited by local students on field trips, and Bath-Miller Park, Bella Wyatt Park, Spring Street Park, and West End Park all have tons of sports facilities and playgrounds for kids. Marshall is also home to Nature Park, which comprises 30 acres and has been left in its natural state since it was acquired, making it the perfect place to observe local wildlife and go for a hike.
