Tipp City enjoys many parks and recreational areas for such a small town – what can we say? We love our parks! Some of the parks are described below.
Canal Lock Park is the newest completed park in the City.The bike path runs through this park. There are benches and a picnic table for your enjoyment.
Currently under construction, the Miami County Bike Trail will be a north-south paved biking trail that will stretch the length of Miami County, allowing bikers, hikers and walkers to follow the path of the Great Miami River and Miami and Erie Canal. Starting at the Shelby county line, it will run south through the towns of Piqua, Troy and Tipp City before meeting up with the Montgomery County portion just south of Tipp City.
City Park houses the Roundhouse, three shelters, 8 baseball diamonds, playground equipment and the Tippecanoe Family Aquatic Center. A popular feature of City Park is the renovated Roundhouse, an historic structure that is a favorite spot for family picnics and reunions. Tipp-Monroe Community Services hosts a summer playground at the Roundhouse for eight weeks while organizations such as the Mum Festival Committee utilizes the facility for their annual events. There is also a community canoe livery and boat ramp on the Great Miami River at City Park.

There are currently three shelters available for use, 10 soccer fields, 2 softball diamonds, 10 baseball diamonds, 2 sand volleyball courts, a skate-park, basketball court, batting cage, horseshoe pits, fishing pond, driving range, and playground equipment.
