The Alvord City park has a lot of amenities to share with the community. These include a basketball court, baseball field, playground, a frisbee golf course, and shelter house with restrooms and showers. New playground equipment was installed in July 2020!
The Community Center and Park Shelter House are both great facilities. The community center features a stove, microwave, and fridge. There is a large area that is great for gatherings, such as weddings, graduation parties, or family reunions. The park shelter house features a large room with fridge and counter-space, great for outdoor barbecues and other social gatherings. There are restrooms at both facilities. They are available for reservations.
Our Little Free Library is located on the side of the City Office building. Feel free to take a book or leave a book. The Rule of Thumb is: a Little Free Library is a free book-sharing box where anyone may take a book or share a book. They function on the honor system. You do not need to share a book in order to take one. If you take a book or two from a little library, try to bring some to share to that same library, or another in your area, when you can.
The campground includes 5 cement camping pads with electricity at each site. There is a water hydrant on one end available for use. The sites are available as first come, first serve and are $10 per night. Please drop your payment in the door slot of the City Office.
Alvord Days is our annual town celebration held on the first weekend of June. We generally have a live band, supper, kids games and a fireworks celebration.
