Parks and Recreation


Jim Thorpe Park

Located just off of Highway 51, Jim Thorpe Park was completed in 1935 as part of the New Deal Works Progress Administration (WPA), Jim Thorpe Park has been a staple of our community for decades.

We feature a small RV park with water and electrical hookups, a picnic area, tennis courts, a baseball field, a rodeo arena, a walking trail, and two playgrounds. Yale's community swimming pool resides within Jim Thorpe park as well.
