Parks and Fields

In Ridgeland, we have ample opportunities for recreation. Jog or bike along our winding, scenic multi-use trail. Stroll with a pal at Friendship while the kids hit the playground. Round up the friends for flag-football on the banks of the Rez at Old Trace. Play the day away. Sweat it out. Come together.
