Maury County Park Facilities
Maury County Park is a 242-acre passive recreation area located in the heart of Columbia. Home of Mule Day and the Maury County Fair as well as a host of other annual events, Maury County Park (MCP) is the perfect venue for any occasion, large or small.
Pavilions & Playgrounds
In addition to the eight (8) pavilions (Kiwanis, White Oak, Bridle & Saddle, Civitan, Jr. Order, Rotary, Jaycee and Monsanto) and the Baker Building available for reservation. MCP has three playgrounds: the big, wooden playground called Kids Kingdom, which is in the process of being replaced with a new, bigger playground; the smaller playground called Jared's Dream; and a small toddler playground.
