Pride Park is an 80-acre recreational area built in 1999 that offers spectacular views of rolling hills and deep ravines. Much of the park was originally a sheep farm. Two family cemeteries are still located and protected on the park grounds. About 59 acres of the park are undeveloped.
Park features include:
- Two paved walking/hiking trails and multiple unpaved trails
- Basketball court
- Open playfields
- Three covered shelters with restrooms
Three covered shelters, each with six picnic tables, grills, water fountains, concrete floors, and handicap accessible restrooms are available to rent at Pride Park:
- Winston Park Shelter 1: co-located with Shelter #2 next to the playground (faces the playground)
