Hoisington Walking Trails
Rising like a phoenix from ashes, Hoisington has steadily recovered from a devastating tornado in the spring of 2001. Much of a western housing area, the parks, the high school, and Clara Barton Hospital were either destroyed or heavily damaged. Today, thanks to thousands of volunteers and the efforts of local citizens and government, the school, parks, hospital, and housing area have been repaired and rebuilt. Part of the work done includes the rebuilding and renovation of park facilities on the western edge of the city. Bicentennial Park now includes a concrete walking path, picnic shelters, a new playground for children, ball parks and grandstands, the city swimming pool and bathhouse, and new tennis courts. The park has long been a favorite summer activity center for the citizens of Hoisington and it is better than ever.
