Local Park

Simpson's local park is located on Telfaire Street.  Park hours are sun-up to sun-set.  Our Simpson citizens are welcome to use our park facilities any time during park hours.  If you would like to reserve the park for birthday parties or events you may download an application by clicking on the attachment below or stop by the Village of Simpson Town Hall or you may request it by email at simpson@suddenlinkmail.com.   Charcoal grills, playground equipment, basketball goals and baseball fields are available for use in the park area.  The baseball field is available during park hours except during practice or games of the Simpson Baseball Team.  Enjoy the walking trail while watching your children play, a baseball or basketball game, or for a great place to exercise safely.

We ask that you keep the park clean and pick up behind yourselves when using the facilities.

The playground and walking trail located at Salem United Methodist Church is also open to the public.  Open hours are sun-up to sun-set except during program hours at the church.
