Named after the city’s first policeman, Buddy Attick Park in Greenbelt is a spacious and well-kept park with a 23-acre lake serving as the focal point. Enjoy walking, jogging, or biking along the dirt and stone path that winds its way through the woods and around the lake, approximately 1.25 miles long. Canoes, kayaks, and fishing is permitted in the lake with proper permits and licenses. The park also features picnic pavilions with grills, tables, and benches, a paved court area, playground, and restrooms. Locals love the park not only for the recreational amenities, but also because it is the site for the annual Easter Egg Hunt and 4th of July festivities and fireworks.

Buddy Attick Park has a limited amount of parking available and also a Permit Parking Area. Residents are allowed to apply for the Permit Parking Area at no cost. The park is open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. and restrooms close at dusk.
