Lofty oak trees and a magnificent view of Carter's Mountain highlight the 7.35 acres of rolling land which make up Forest Hills Park, which was originally known as Forest Park. Today there are extensively developed activity areas for individuals of all ages. A Little League baseball field and a concession stand lie at the lowest end of the site near the paved parking area. On the hillside slopes nearby are a number of picnic facilities, including a picnic shelter and outdoor grills. On the promontory ridge is an abundance of playground equipment, including slides, swing sets, a merry-go-round, animal rockers, and a horseshoe pit. Forest Hills Park also includes two full basketball courts and an extensive spray ground, which is open daily from 10:00 am - 8:00 pm, mid-May through mid-September.

Dogs must be leashed and under control at all times.

The park is open 6AM to 9PM.
