Central Park

 Opened in the fall of 2001, Central Park is a beautiful 25-acre natural park in the heart of King, adjacent to King Elementary School. This wooded area contains a large outdoor amphitheater, a historic 18th century log cabin and outdoor kitchen, numerous walking trails (see printable trail map at the bottom of the page), and a pond complete with a small fishing deck.
Fishing is allowed at the pond on a “catch and release” basis.
The park's amphitheater can be rented for events and programs, as well as two picnic shelters. For more information, please see the Facility Rental Information section or visit to make a reservation. 
Central Park is a peaceful place to bring your family for quiet picnics and other gatherings. Because Central Park is designed to be a passive, natural park, skateboards and bicycles are not permitted. Dogs are allowed on leashes.


Veteran's Memorial 
“All gave some...and some gave all.”
One of our proudest attractions is the Veteran’s Memorial that opened in 2004. The memorial is dedicated to all veterans who have served in any of the 5 branches of the armed services from World War I to the present. The memorial was constructed in the shape of a pentagon honoring the five branches – Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and the Coast Guard.
Area citizens participated in the process by donating memorial pavers that would be placed at the memorial in remembrance of the veteran. The interior of the memorial was constructed with an American Star to symbolize American troops covered by a pool of water. At the middle of the pool area a black granite 5-sided wall stands inscribed with the names of local veterans who were killed in action. 
The memorial was constructed to house approximately 1800 veteran’s pavers. Pavers still remain for purchase at City Hall.
