Humphreys Park

Located on the east side of Linton along SR 54 and more commonly known as the “Linton City Park”, it serves as the city’s premier public park featuring picnic areas, miniature golf course, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, basketball courts, splash park, various playground areas and equipment, including a 13-foot slide, and swimming pool (A. M. Risher Aquatic Center).  During its early existence, the park was home to the Greene County Fair, which moved to its present-day location just east of Switz City in 1971.  The park also includes several structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corps through the Works Progress Administration, including the East Shelter House, the Fountain, the Band Shell, and the James M. Humphreys Memorial (father of City Parks).  The park also has several enclosed shelter houses available for family gatherings and community meetings that can be reserved by contacting Linton City Hall.  The park is also home to several community events and festivals held throughout the year.
