Homewood has a reputation of having both a large and intricate park system. Residents have access to outdoor as well as indoor facilities that allow people to enjoy nature and get exercise.
For these parks, residents must purchase a membership that is monthly or yearlong. Senior and family discounts exist as well.
One of the most popular parks in the neighborhood is Homewood Central Park
on Oxmoor Road. It lies across from the Homewood Community Center and has plenty of open green spaces for pets
to walk around on leashes and for kids to run and play. The six pavilions host plenty of families and friends who want to have picnics and relax while the kids play on the playground. The park also has two tennis courts and a short walking path.
West Homewood Park has facilities used for sports activities such as baseball, tennis, soccer and lacrosse. Nine different fields and eight tennis courts can be found here along with a playground for kids and a community pool for the whole family. Pets can be brought to the park as long as they stay outside of the fenced areas.
Residents also love the Homewood Community Center as it comes stocked with inside gyms to work out, pools for a refreshing swim or workout and concessions for when you need a snack. Kids obsess over the splash park, which can be defined as a playground with spraying water that helps them cool off on those warm summer afternoons.
Each year, Homewood Patriot Park hosts a Fall Festival that costs only $5 and features games, concession stands and plenty of opportunity to connect with other residents.
