Residents of New Homes in Troy Enjoy a Variety of Outdoor Amenities

One of the features of a great community is an abundance of options for family-friendly fun. If you love organized sports, playgrounds, camping and picnics, or if you enjoy exploring lakes, rivers, streams, ponds and wooded areas — consider a Rolwes home in Troy, MO. 

This quiet town and its surrounding areas are a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. The natural attributes of the region create an ideal backdrop for enjoying your new home and the recreational amenities around it. 

Fairgrounds Park

Not to be confused with the nearby Lincoln County Fairgrounds Park, this well-designed complex is a sports lover’s dream. The facilities include skate ramps, basketball courts, tennis courts, four baseball fields and three soccer fields as well as a jungle gym and a tire playground for young children. Plenty of grassland and several barbecue pits make this an excellent location for residents of new homes in Troy who want to host large family gatherings. You may hear this park referred to as “Duck Pond Park”, due to it being a quaint, centralized habitat for waterfowl.

Avery Park

Located just north of Troy City Hall, this area of grassy knolls, walking trails, park benches and barbecue pits features a traditional playground complete with slides, a jungle gym, swing sets and merry-go-rounds for the kids and rentable gazebos for special events. This park is perfect for those days when you need an escape to take in a bit of fresh air.

Weinand Park

A picturesque place for daily walks in the sunshine, this park features well-manicured lawns filled with lush trees and children’s’ play structures including slides and swing sets. The grounds also include a covered pavilion for special gatherings, arts and crafts events and community functions. Weinand Park is a great place for daily exercise and community-based activities. 

Woods Fort

This historical landmark highlights the events and circumstances surrounding the war of 1812 and the legacies of those who settled in the region. History buffs will find the two onsite log cabins built in the early 1900s to commemorate the construction methods of the prior century. The park is a popular local and regional choice for weddings, receptions and family outings. 

Cuivre River State Park

Located in the Lincoln Hills region, Cuivre River State Park resembles the Ozarks of southern Missouri including savanna, prairie, woodlands and limestone caves. The park is a popular destination for enjoying springtime blooms and stunning fall scenery and is home to thousands of species of plants and animals. This 6426-acre expanse offers over 100 campsites, fishing, swimming, bird watching and RV access. Outdoor enthusiasts will find the Lincoln Hills Natural Area of particular interest, and can explore this section of the park through a network of hiking trails. 

The Troy area offers outdoor recreational amenities of every sort. Contact us to learn more about living near a wide variety of parks and natural areas.
