The original park land for Kennedy Heights Park was purchased in 1930 with additional small lots added throughout the years for a total of 12.484 acres. With its rolling hills and mature trees, the park provides a pleasant neighborhood retreat. There is a shelter house at the top of the hill, many picnic tables throughout the wooded slopes, play equipment and a soccer field. A beech grove exists in this small park and a wetland with boardwalks.
