Bray Creek Walking Trail
Joe Brigance Park
Kids' Park

Twice-per-year Flywheel Association events, Spring Flywheel Festival the last full weekend in April, Fall Flywheel Festival the last full weekend in September, held at Joe Brigance Park, 635 Starkville Road. Visitors have been recorded from as far away as Wisconsin for this unique festival which celebrates the industrial and agricultural heritage of flywheel engines powered by steam, diesel, and water. This group has invested volunteer hours and physical improvements to the park over the years and apparently has every intention of making it their “home” for many years to come, continuing to attract members and participants from far and wide.

Rails to Trails – Tanglefoot Trail, a 10 foot wide nature trail stretching along the 44-miles of the old GM&O Railroad, from Houston to New Albany. This is an opportunity for people of all ages to bike, jog, walk, and simply enjoy the beauty of the outdoors in rural Mississippi. Many out-of-towners, as well as locals, are enjoying the trail.
