Play ball! Lions Park in Walnut Cove is known for its competitive Little League softball and baseball programs. Owned by Stokes County, the park is managed and operated by the Walnut Cove Lions Club and Walnut Cove Boosters.
Lions Park offers four athletic fields and a community building for public use. A concession stand is centrally located and stocked throughout the season.
In March, South Stokes High School baseball team hosted a free sports camp and plans to make it an annual event for local girls and boys.
The park offers a walking trail with a shelter nearby. The Lions Park is also home to the Walnut Cove Wildcats football program and uses the facilities for practices and team meetings.
The Lions Park fills up quickly at the annual Fourth of July Celebration which includes music, concessions and a large fireworks display at dusk each year.
