A natural haven amid a suburban neighborhood, Crown Hill Park is a place to retreat, admire abundant birdlife and enjoy a wide range of recreation.

Once bountiful with wheat and vegetable crops, Crown Hill is now where visitors steal away to stroll, in-line skate, cycle and run on a 1.2-mile paved trail around Crown Hill Lake, while anglers ply its shore for bass, catfish and trout. Equestrians enjoy a 2.25-mile loop around the park. The wetlands in the northwest corner, Kestrel Pond, is certified as a National Urban Wildlife Refuge for its value to a variety of migrating waterfowl. Kestrel Pond is closed during peak nesting season from March 1 to June 30 except for guided nature walks offered by Lookout Mountain Nature Center.
