In the summer free concerts in the park draw the locals on Thursday nights. There is a great public golf course with the longest hole in the country (749 yards).

Montreat College and Conference center is a mile the other way with Lake Susan providing the reflecting waters and waterfall that serves Flat Creek which runs by the cabins. There is a wonderful creekside playground and natural beauty of rhododendron and mountain laurel for inspiration.
