Community Facilities


What would you say about a community with 22 city parks, a 105,000-square foot recreation center, a skate park, a biking/nature trail along a river and an auditorium/club room for special events/trade shows/meetings?

Sounds like a community with a bushel full of pride, right?

The venerable auditorium has been the site for special events, trade shows and public meetings. Adjacent to the auditorium is the Cody Club Room, site of the Monday meetings of The Cody Club (the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce) and the Thursday gatherings of the Cody Rotary Club.

The City of Cody offers 22 well-groomed city and community parks scattered throughout the community and featuring everything from a band shell for weekly "Concerts in the Park" during July and August to climbing walls to tennis courts to picnic tables to playgrounds, basketball courts and restrooms. City parks have been used as venues for soccer tournaments and hot air balloon festivals. Baseball and softball complexes are part of the recreation mix, too.

Beck Lake Park, {map us} near the Yellowstone Regional Airport, offers a large area of natural terrain for hiking and biking plus fishing and boating. The Paul Stock Nature Trail provides 1.5 miles of interpretive hiking/biking on dirt and gravel paths along the Shoshone River.

Newest addition to the Cody recreation scene is the Cody Skateboard Park in Mentock Park. The park features six bowls and is free to the public from 8 a.m. til dark. It has proved so popular the City of Cody plans to expand and add new features, using a design committee composed of young skateboarders!
