Located directly across from Dulle Park, Pioneer Park is the most natural and interactive park in the Montgomery Park System. Amenities in this park are varied and range from active areas to natural use areas.
This park has a combination of great natural scenery coupled with structures that allow for easy enjoyment of this park. The Pioneer Park gazebo is very picturesque for wedding photos or family gatherings. The position of the gazebo, looking over Sycamore Creek and surrounded by the butterfly shaped flower beds and the wildflower meadow, is just perfect for all types of uses and can be reserved for social gatherings at no cost by residents or employees of Montgomery businesses. Also, Pioneer Pond dock with bench swings along the shoreline make for a great place to rest and listen to the fountain or the croaks of the bullfrogs, enjoy a good book or cast in a line on a warm summer day.
The .54 mile trail through Pioneer Park gives walkers and runners options as it meanders through the woods, over bridges, along the soccer and baseball fields, downhill to the creek and back to the pond. The walkway borders the wildflower meadow, open fields, and wooded areas. People enjoy walking their dogs and meeting up with neighbors and friends in this park named for the founding pioneers of Montgomery who traveled here from New York along the Sycamore Creek. Plaques about the history of our founders and a tree grove memorializing past citizens who have served the community add to the diversity in this scenic park.
