OLD TOWN PARK/SKATE PARK

City of TalentThe Old Town Park commonly known as the "skatepark," is located on Main Street between John Street and the railroad tracks.

Another significant section of the site is dedicated to recreation. The area contains lawn, benches, and a barbeque grill.

It is largely grass, though the northern half of the site is populated by small pine trees planted by a local volunteer group. Large tree trunks have been laid down along the eastern border of the lawn to divert high water. There is also irrigation access on the site.

BARK PARK

Talent Bark Park is one of Talent's newest parks. Located across the street from Chuck Robert's Park on Talent Ave, it offers a play area for dogs of all sizes. Trees, grass and a pathway around the perimeter allow for both canines and their human companions a place for exercise, fun and freedom. While benches and a picnic table offer the owners a place to rest. Doggie stations are inside the park so owners can easily pick up after their pooches. Bring your dog, and enjoy the company of other Talent dogs. Bark Park's latest fun for dogs is a tunnel! It includes grass, a small hill, a tunnel to explore (with drainage and secure footing) - your dog will love it!
