The Covington Community Park is located on West Broadway along the scenic Stillwater River, making it an ideal spot for fishing, canoeing, or any other outdoor activity. The eight acre park contains 2 ball diamonds, playground equipment, open picnic areas and two enclosed shelter houses.
Two shelters are available to rent from April through October. The large shelter house can seat 100 people. The smaller shelter can accommodate 40 people.
Either shelter can be reserved up to a year in advance with a non-refundable payment of $30 at the Covington Government Center at 1 S. High St.

Several upgrades have been made over the years thanks to the generosity of local organizations and individuals. For example, upgrades to the playground equipment were made in 2010 thanks to a donation from the Covington Community Chest.
The Covington Community Park has also been the home of the annual Fort Rowdy celebration that takes place at the conclusion of every summer.
