Parks and Recreation

Discover life at your pace in our great outdoors

We might be a growing city, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten what originally brought settlers to Batesville in the first place – our groves of oak, poplar and walnut trees. We’re proud to preserve the city’s balance with nature with our well-maintained parks, golf courses, and forested trails. And we’re adding new trails all the time, so whether you’re a casual stroller or a BMX enthusiast, you’ll find a new trail and a new part of Batesville to discover. We also have sports and recreational facilities perfect for the whole family. Our very own Batesville Beautification League is dedicated to making our city appealing and welcoming to both residents and visitors by enhancing the beauty and vibrancy throughout our community.
