Summer Sun Fun

Calhoun County is known for outdoor recreation, and Alabama is known for warm humid summers. So, where can you explore outdoors and cool off at the same time?

Terrapin Creek, Piedmont
This creek, running from Cleburne through Calhoun to Cherokee, is excellent for floating and fishing. With outfitters like No Worries Kayaks, Redneck Yacht Club and the Terrapin Outdoor Center, there are several options for various size groups to rent kayaks or canoes and float. So pack a lunch and head for a day at the creek.

Neely Henry Lake, Ohatchee
Whether you'd like to fish, kayak, boat, sail or just swim, Ohatchee Beach has the spot for you. Locals operate many boat ramps for the numerous recreational opportunities. There is also primitive camping and hiking trails along the Alabama Power undeveloped shoreline land. So, take the whole family to #OptOutdoors this summer.

Germania Springs, Jacksonville 
Complete with a dog park, playground and easy access to the Ladiga Trail, Germania Springs is a great shallow spot for the little ones and family with paws to cool off this summer. If you have a birthday to celebrate or a family gathering to host, there are even pavilions available through Parks & Recreation!

 Zinn Park, Anniston
Located conveniently in downtown Anniston, the Splash Pad is across the street from the Solohub Justice Center and in Zinn Park, close to the MLK Pavilion and playgrounds! These splash pads are a fun way to cool off during the hot summer and admission is free.

Oxford Lake, Oxford
Oxford not only has the brand new Choccolocco Park, they also have the beautiful Oxford Lake, located next to the Civic Center. The Civic Center is also home to tennis courts, baseball and softball fields, the Freedom Park playground and a public swimming pool. This area is ideal for summer fun, from fishing on the pier to practicing favorite sports and splashing around in the pool.
