A favorite for families, Harold D. Ritter Park boasts multiple slides, a sky wheel climber, a climbing wall, and a sand area that includes a small play house, and sand diggers. Other highlights include two spring rider toys and a scrambler whirl, in addition to sports fields and courts and a picnic shelter.

Both younger and older kids enjoy the complex play area, and visitors can appreciate the hiking trails of Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve and greenway trails located within easy walking distance.
