Nike Park, located on Newport Road in Frenchtown, was originally part of a World War II Nike missile base and was acquired from the federal government.  An area of this park was recently tiled and four soccer fields were developed.  A 1999 DNR grant allowed for the development of an accessible play area, pathways, and parking improvements.  Also present in this park is a picnic area, play equipment, and large areas of open space.  Cooperative agreements with private clubs have resulted in the development of a model aircraft flying area and an area for beagle training and competitions is under development.  A small section of the park is inaccessible due to its location on the opposite side of a county drain and is farmed by the adjacent owner.
