Tuttle Creek Lake is located 5 miles north of Manhattan as the reservoir is situated on the northern edge of the Flint Hills. The lake area offers 12,000 acres of water with 100 miles of wooded shoreline. More than 16,000 acres of land surround the lake and have been enhanced to benefit wildlife and provide excellent hunting opportunities. The area is acclaimed for common species of turkey, white-tailed deer, quail, pheasant and waterfowl.
One of the oldest parks in the community, City Park is located in the east-central part of Manhattan, close to downtown and Aggieville and directly across the street from City Hall. Although the park is managed for high-volume use, it provides ample space for quiet conversation and picnics throughout its 45 acres. A large outdoor stage in the northeast section of the park hosts Arts in the Park, a nationally recognized summer outdoor entertainment series. Several ball fields, a rose garden, tennis courts with lights, an outdoor basketball court, a mile-long perimeter multi-use trail, a playground, a splash park, and an aquatic center make City Park a place that offers something for everyone.
