Harmon Park is a must with kids. Centrally located near the Crescent Hotel, Harmon Park offers a community Skatepark, playground equipment, stage, picnic areas and trailhead for bikers headed on the in-city trails or out to Lake Leatherwood Park. Harmon Park is also PET FRIENDLY as our community bark park lets our four legged friends run out some energy.
There are over 21 miles of multi-use trails at Lake Leatherwood City Park are designed as low-impact, single track nature trails for foot and bike traffic. Many rocky ledges, steep slopes, extended grades, creek crossings and varied terrain make most trails challenging for both foot and bike traffic.
Black Bass Lake
Enjoy the trails encircling the lake to access a non-motorized boat launch, a picnic area, several fishing spots, two wooden bridges and about one and a half miles of hiking and bike riding. Standing Rock, a vertical sandstone remnant, protrudes from the depths of the lake along Standing Rock Trail – while Sycamore Spring flows into the lake crossing Sycamore Spring. The Bluff Trail hugs the St. Joe geological formation, and amazing limestone outcropping, and features overviews of the lake and runs just above Sycamore Spring Trail.
