County Parks are the following 13: Mary Louise Fowler Park,
Pactiv Field, Rotadyne Field, Stone Road Complex, Spillers Park, South Street
Park, Trailblazer Park, Conyers Street Gym, City Pond, Beaver Park, B.C. Crowell
Park, Baker Field, and Anderson Park. These thirteen parks have been built by
the Newton County Recreation Commission. More than 300 acres of park land offer
the public a place for relaxation or recreational activities. All of the parks
are handicapped accessible and are constantly being improved to meet the demands
of the public.
City Pond Park offers the beauty and the serenity of a park on the lake. Most
of the facilities are available for rent by the public. City Pond Park offers
six of the finest lighted baseball fields found on the state. A large two mile
trail circles the pond and offers walkers and runners an excellent place to
exercise. The lower end of the park by the pond is an open area that is perfect
for playing catch or throwing Frisbees.
In addition to the parks, Newton’s lakes are great spots for boating,
skiing, swimming and fishing. Jackson Lake, Lake Varner, and Turner Lake are
amongst the communities favorites. . Each lake has public boat ramps and picnic
areas. At Factory Shoals Park, located approximately 10 miles south of Covington,
the Alcovy River tumbles over granite shoals, and provides fun opportunities
for playing or sunbathing. Picnic areas as well as primitive campsites and river
fishing are available at most of the parks.
