From the New Albany Country Club to the New Albany-Plain Local Joint Parks District, the City of New Albany has paid close attention to the details of daily living that enhance our quality of life. The concentration of recreational, civic, institutional and commercial activity provides residents with walkable destinations and gathering places that encourage social interaction.
A network of parks, sidewalks, and 30 miles of leisure trails bring life and vitality to our streets. A number of our leisure trails lead or connect to neighboring communities and other trails outside New Albany.
