Sports and Recreation
Wanting a quiet and relaxing picnic in the park? How about an exciting afternoon at the drag strip? What ever it is you wish to do, we have an array of activities for you to choose from. Spectacular facilities, convenient locations, and affordable prices prove that "It's in our Nature to Play."
 
Great Bend's variety of sports venues allows us the ability to accommodate any sport. Our sports facilities guide can assist you in planning your next sporting event in Great Bend.
The city has made a commitment to its park, and it shows. There are picnic tables, lakes, beaches, trees, walking trails, soccer fields, a great zoo, places to fish, bike, skate, play horseshoes, or rent a paddle boat.
The facility is the perfect location for tournaments. The complex provides plenty of parking space, playgrounds, batting cages, full concessions and restrooms.
Regular races take place about twice a month between the months of March and October at this historic dragstrip, where the first ever NHRA national event was held.
Wetlands Aquatic Center is another Great Bend surprise, and it's a refreshing one!
