A Large Courtyard in Constant Motion
Permanent benches, an ample bandstand, Veterans' Memorial, refurbished bell tower holding the 2nd bell of the original courthouse, and plenty of trees welcome visitors to Osceola's very busy town square. Would you like to do a bicycle tour of the town- rent one through Public Health! Beginning in early spring, Thursday's in the Park, scheduled by Chamber Main Street and hosted by various clubs and groups, offer a variety of activities and vendors.
Tuesdays and Saturdays, the Farmers' Market begins in late spring and continues through October. During the 4th of July, a carnival, vendors, games and musical entertainment cover every inch of space. Christmas trees, a Santa house and other decorations welcome all during the holidays.
With four public lakes for fishing and boating and an extensive trail system connecting them to other recreational areas, Osceola offers plenty of opportunity to enjoy nature. East Lake Park and Q Pond have play areas as well as picnic areas and shelters, and West Lake hosts Lakeside Casino, plenty of room for boating and large public dock and boat ramp.
The Osceola Aquatic Center and Becky Percels Skate Park are conveniently located near the Clarke High School/Middle campus. The pool has a space for every age and ability, and staff offers a cardboard boat race and dog swim at the end of the season. Skate board enthusiasts can enjoy their sport in a professionally designed, safe space.
