Homewood Central Park, often known simply as Homewood Park, is a public park located in Homewood at 1632 Oxmoor Road, where Oxmoor intersects Central Avenue. It's facilities include a swimming pool, to which residents and non-residents may buy season passes; a playground, home to Cate; tennis courts; picnic pavilions; and a community center. Griffin Creek also runs through the park.
The new work included landscaping of the creek's shoreline and new bridges over it, new picnic pavilions, an enlarged playground, an amphitheater, public restrooms, and a small skate park. In July 2008 the Park and Recreation Board voted to remove the skating area following a week which saw the assault of a police officer and the confiscation of a firearm at the park.
