Laishley Park contains seventeen (17) acres originally developed in 1993 within the Downtown District.  In 2005 redevelopment of the park began with the construction of new docks, a boat ramp, parking facilities, and a marina building containing a Harbor Master’s Office and a community room.  Additionally, construction of a restaurant, open pavilions to facilitate a fresh market, and an outdoor concert area/festival space were completed in 2010.  This facility hosts a variety of festivals and events from chili bake-offs to concerts and is host to a 4th of July celebration.
