Mason Parks


Each park in Mason is family oriented, providing activities for multiple age groups to the extent possible.

Passive parks preserve natural habitat for birds and wild animals. Walking trails and a few benches are provided for the enjoyment of humans.

Active sports facilities are provided in locations that improve community-wide distribution and allow flexibility as the community grows.

Heritage Oak Park

4601 US 42 North

Dedicated in 1976 in honor of the country's bicentennial, Heritage Oak Park is the city's largest, with soccer, tennis, softball, and basketball facilities. With these facilities, the park serves many families involved in local sports organized by groups such as SAY soccer and MYO baseball and softball. The lighted basketball and tennis courts are open for free play when not used for scheduled programming. The park also has two children's playgrounds, two picnic shelters, and restroom facilities. Paved trails around the park make a circular mile.

Heritage Oak Park has a special lightning prediction system notifying guests of the potential for lightning in the area before it strikes. A lightning prediction system detects atmospheric conditions likely to produce lightning strikes in the area and sounds an auditory alert, warning those nearby that lightning is imminent and giving the chance to find safety before the storm actually impacts the area.


Pine Hill Lakes Park

211 Kings Mills Rd

Pine Hill Lakes Park is adjacent to Corwin M. Nixon Park. Two miles of nature trails, two fishing lakes, and wooded areas make this a relaxing park area. Known for butterflies in the open meadow and trees in the arboretum, Pine Hill Lakes Park is an oasis of serenity. It holds Pine Hill Lodge, built in 1943 and acquired by the city in 2007, where nature activities and learning experiences are held each year. There is a Wildlife Habitat certified by the National Wildlife Federation and a wildlife viewing area at the lodge.

The park has a rich history, with an old pool buried underground below the dam. The area was a private recreational space from the 1950s until the 1970s.

Pine Hill Lakes Park allows fishing throughout the year and is stocked a few times a year. Head to Mason Community Center to get your daily or annual fishing pass.
