Taylor is one of the largest parks with 156 acres to roam. The entrance is located on 8th Avenue across from the Pinecrest golf course,  There are picnic tables, a boat ramp, a disc golf course and a 53-acre lake. There is a one mile fitness trail that is two miles if you double back after you reach 8th Ave again.  On the southern edge of Taylor Lake is another smaller lake where alligators, small ducks and wading birds reside.
