EMP is a gem. Lots of stuff for kids and adults; what a wonderful walking trail awaits you along the old E&A train bed along the Elkin Creek. Easy walk with interesting natural areas. A must visit.

The EMP is a beautifully maintained park with tennis courts, large walking track/trails, ball fields, play grounds, pool and indoor gymnasium and weight room. If you want a quiet walk in the park or a vigorous workout, you can find it there.

The "Best Little Town in North Carolina" can count the Elkin Park as a grand asset. The wonderful park connects with the Elkin Valley Trails. A great place for a stroll. Come on down, you will enjoy!

We visited from out of town and walked from Main St. Great trail with lots of historic markers. Was surprised to see that mid-afternoon there were no facilities available. I understand about winterizing the water, but at least one port-o-john would be considerate.
