Directly across Fairground Road from the Fairgrounds Recreation Center is the delightful James Ranch Park, which features a restored nineteenth century Italianate farm house with a springhouse and pond. You can stroll through the gardens featuring a variety of planting themes --- such as the perennial, enabling and vegetable gardens.
The park is also a popular location for wedding, prom and homecoming photos.
The James Ranch Park is the location of the annual Santa's Holiday in the Park Festival, which takes place in early December.
