This park was laid out in the community's original plat. Located just east of Old Highway 40, the park provided a popular resting place for travelers.
In approximately 1926, the Long Oil Co. established a service station in the northwest corner of the park. The station was later used by the Sinclair Refining Co., and the outside area of the park was used as a trailer camp.
Long's Park is now a neighborhood park, often used for family gatherings and an occasional special event. Established shade trees, a play area and shelter provide the ideal setting for these activities.
Long's Park Shelter

All park shelters are open during regular park hours for public use. Exclusive use is always granted to those who have obtained a reservation permit (PDF) through the Parks and Recreation Office. Confirmation will be returned via mail, and must be in the possession of the recipient while using the park facility.
