Area: 75.5 Acres. Donated to the Parks and Recreation Department in 1986, this is the second largest park in the City. Developed to accommodate primarily passive and interpretive programs, Abshire Park helps to maintain balance in the park system between active and passive recreational opportunities. The park lies adjacent to, and is accessible from the Pumpkinvine Trail, a leg of the Maple City Greenway Trail Network. The north end of the park is a managed natural area and includes a prairie restoration, wet lands, and traditional forest. Rock Run Creek borders the park to the southwest and provides an excellent habitat. Abshire Cabin, a rentable enclosed pavilion, is located at this park.
