TrailsA paved trail two-thirds of a mile long encircles the main recreation area of the park, and is popular for walking and jogging. Three loops around the park on this scenic trail add up to a total of two miles.
Picnics and Group EventsDwight Lydell Park has two open picnic shelters that are available for picnics and other group events such as weddings, meetings, reunions and parties. All of these may be reserved for a fee. If the open shelters are not reserved, they are available first-come first-served for no fee.
PlaygroundTwo playground structures are located just off the main loop trail near the library and the octagon open picnic shelter, at the east end of the park.
