Central Park (NEW)

It’s no secret that there have been some amazing changes and improvements happening at Emmanuel Pines. But you’re going to love our newest project! At Central Park you can:

  • Play a game of soccer, football, or wiffle ball
  • Take a stroll around the meandering path
  • Lay out a blanket or chairs to read or book or get a tan
  • Let the kids run off some energy on the perfect turf
  • Smell the roses at our memorial rose garden (coming soon!)

While there are a lot of new things going on, it might just be the oldest thing that you’re after. Our beautiful property backs up to thousands of acres of national forest where you’re able to:

  • Go for a prayer walk solo or with your team
  • Find a quiet place to reflect and contemplate
  • Get your legs burning on a mountain biking excursion
  • Explore the miles of hiking, walking, and nature trails
  • Climb a tree! (for those of us who are still kids at heart)
