You cannot have a small town without the traditional city park. In Endwell, the largest and most popular green space has to be Highland Park. With multiple pavilions for barbecuing and picnicking, a basketball court, gymnasium, baseball field, volleyball court, and public pool, they have all their bases covered for summertime fun. Mingle with your neighbors, catch up on town gossip, play with the kids, it can all be enjoyed on this peaceful little stretch of rolling green hills and wide open spaces. The park is open year round, but gets much less attendance in the winter months for obvious reasons.
Every year, Endwell throws a huge festival in Highland Park to celebrate the country’s independence. The annual Fourth of July Fireworks display and festival is one event not to be missed. The entire town comes out for the show and activities, and you can of find yourself bumping into dozens of people you may know. The kids love playing with sparklers while the adults sip on their beverage of choice. It is a truly American way to celebrate Independence Day, and Endwell does it right with a parade, fireworks, food stalls, and so much more.
