Donaldson Community Park (map)


Donaldson Community Park is mostly known for the North Fayette Township festival with fireworks that is held annually in early August instead of the Independence Day Fireworks.  So, if you love fireworks like we do, or if you missed the Fourth of July fireworks, then make sure to come here.

The park has public restrooms, a playground, a dog park and 0.9mile long handicap accessible paved trail and sport fields (baseball, tennis, basketball) and picnic pavilions.


One thing I love about Donaldson Community Park are the kids story boards the local library has placed along the trail and that tell a developing story for kids and grown up kids (like me) on 10 or so story boards.  You will see the conclusion when you get to the end of the trail.

The trail starts behind the decorative wooden fence to the left of the amphitheater and goes counter clockwise on the trail.  This is a custom that started during the Covid-19 crisis, and I can only hope that this continues.
