The great outdoors of Overton County offers enthusiasts some of the best boating, fishing, kayaking, and hiking around. Our streams and rivers, along with the crystal-clear waters of Dale Hollow Lake, provide perfect destinations for vacations and staycations. There’s plenty to do around town, too. The $2.4M Central Park Livingston, funded entirely by grants, serves as an anchor for the community, offering walking paths, water features with a splash pad, amphitheater, benches, and more. Along with several other Overton County parks, it hosts organized sports for all ages. Hidden Valley Golf and Country Club offers a pro shop and cart rental, members’ lounge, tennis courts, and swimming pool.
Standing Stone State Park
Livingston Central Park
The park, situated just off the historic courthouse square, features an amphitheater, open grassy area, playground, water feature with splash pad, walking trail, and restroom facilities. It’s the long-awaited result of years of planning by a downtown revitalization committee tasked with creating ways to bring more people to the courthouse area to shop, eat, and play.
