Historic Opelika commits itself to preserving the charm and quaint feel that this town has always possessed. With that in mind, there is lots of green space and recreational facilities to ensure the future generations can enjoy all the aesthetically pleasing town has to offer.
Opelika is home to over eight local parks of varying sizes, and multiple with playground equipment for families to enjoy. There are many other recreational attractions located outside the city limits such as Chewacla State Park situated just outside of Auburn, off of U.S 29 South. Chewacla has camping facilities and cabins for a family or for larger groups and many walking trails to go exploring. Slightly further away, but within 45 miles is Lake Martin, a popular destination for water sports and summer vacations.
Opelika’s Tiger Town, the Opelika Sportsplex and Aquatics Center and RTJ Grand National Golf Course are just a few key locations in Opelika that prove this is a prosperous city on the rise.
From parks to shopping or arts and culture, there is an abundance of places on offer to unplug and engage. Both Opelika and Auburn offer spacious and well-maintained parks and facilities for outdoor play or spectator sports, and Auburn University has a full calendar of events throughout the year where you can take in some of the best collegiate sports action in the United States.
