Welcome to our beautiful Benton Park! A quiet spot along Fishing Creek to enjoy with family and friends no matter what season. We have 4 pavilions that are available to reserve for reunions, birthdays, or any other type of gathering. Each pavilion is provided with picnic tables, garbage cans, and electricity. Public bathrooms are located near the Grandstand. There is a lighted playground for small children, as well as swings, a sliding board, and merry go round. We also have a lighted Basketball court, 2 tennis courts, and a great historical Grandstand and Baseball Diamond.

We welcome groups to utilize our entire Park and Grandstand/Baseball Diamond area as well, whether it is a musical event, flea market, or a fundraiser that you are planning. The Park is large enough for these type of events, with running water available, overhead park lighting for evening events, and a Bandstand for entertainment venues.

Also, please remember to be courteous and respectful to others in the Park by cleaning up after your event. Picnic tables are provided in each pavilion and are not to be moved to other pavilions. A handicapped parking spot is provided inside the Park, however all other vehicles must park along the street or use the parking area to the South towards the Benton Dam.  If you have questions, concerns, or want to make reservations, big or small, please feel free to contact our office at 570-925-6602.

Above all, please have fun and enjoy the time you spend here. Whether it is simply some quiet time along the creek bank with a book, watching the kids play on the slide, or picnicking with the family…..We are glad you came to visit!
