The City of Laurens has several parks and shelters for people to enjoy.  They are open all year long and are available on a first come first serve basis. The downtown park located next to the swimming pool has play ground equipment for younger children and a shelter house for family gatherings and picnics

 

 

 

Memory Lane is a recently constructed downtown park built through donations by individuals and businesses. There are pergolas, stone tables and benches, a water fountain, stage, and drinking fountain. It is a place of reunion and reflection, a place for positive conversation, and a place to remember those who have contributed to the Laurens community.

Walking Trail 
 The old railroad line on the south side of Laurens has been converted to a walking trail. The trail is open once the snow melts in the Spring and is closed once the first major snowfall happens in the Fall or Winter. Much of the area has been converted over to natural habitat and the trail is approximately 1 mile long.
