Smoot Park

Smoot Park is located at the corner of Chestnut and Second Street and features a Yadkin River Greenway Trailhead. Using this trailhead, the paved TRACK Trail takes you to Memorial Park on a 1.18 mile section of the Greenway. On your way to Memorial Park, notice the birds flying and perching in trees by the river. This was also the site of the Historic encampment of the Over Mountain Victory march to the battle of Kings Mountain in 1780.

Smoot Park offers recreational activities for the entire family. It features a pool, Skate Park, playground equipment, basketball courts, sand volleyball court, picnic tables with shelter, and, of course, the trailhead to the Yadkin River Greenway.  This section of the Greenway has river access, so you may see canoes and kayaks arriving at their destination!
