Established in 1991, Winged Deer Park is a 200-acre district park. The J. Norton Arney family previously owned and operated the farm where Winged Deer now sits from the 1940s through the early ‘70s. Mr. Arney was a noted car dealer and raised and trained show horses in the area. The farm was used primarily to grow hay and had several large stables on the lakefront property. The city purchased the property in 1985. The original farmhouse was converted into what is now the Parks and Recreation Administration Office, which includes a meeting room, working offices and a landscaped patio area with small gazebo. Amenities include five lighted softball fields, scorer’s tower and restroom, three lighted soccer fields, Batter’s Up batting cages, an 18-hole disc golf course, playground area, soccer concession building with restroom, half-mile walking track and paved fitness trails, which wind through the forested section of the park. The lakefront area features two sand volleyball courts, picnic shelter with restroom, public boating access, green space, lighted handicap accessible boardwalk, amphitheatre, and a Festival Plaza multi-use area with restroom. The park’s historical area features the Robert Young Cabin – one of Johnson City’s oldest dwellings – the Massengil Monument, and the James H. Quillen Historical Tree Arboretum.
