The Ava City Park

The main park,which is located at the intersection of 5 highway and 3rd Avenue, has a lot to offer.  The park has two pavilions that are available for public use.  To guarantee the use of the pavilions you will need to make reservations through the park office (417)*683*PARK. The cost to reserve either big pavilion is $5.00 per hour or $25.00 for the entire day. There are 8 picnic tables under the covered pavilions. Please check the calendar to see if the pavilion is available at the time that you need it.  Also the park has lighted tennis courts, a lighted softball field, a basketball court, two sets of playground equipment, and an open play area for the public to enjoy.  If you are wanting to use the softball field please check with the parks office on availability.  This is also where the Water Park is located.

If you have any questions regarding the parks, please feel free to contact the parks office.  Reservations will only be made one year in advance.
