While outside of the City of Sullivan limits, the Park and Lake provides amenities that are enjoyed not only by city residents, but many out-of-town visitors throughout the summer months. The City is working to make it easier for its residents and park visitors to travel between the Downtown area and Park by providing a walking/biking trail. While the County Park and Lake provides many amenities, there is a lot of space for additional fun.
The City of Sullivan challenges FFC innovators to provide new amenities that will fit within the Park and Lake and help boost tourism not only to the Park but give people a reason to stay longer and visit the city as well.
