Three miles of recreational trail at Centralia’s most prominent park have become well-utilized by locals, and it’s easy to see why. Two loops, the Sports Loop and the Lake Trail, make up the greater Borst Park loop of 2 miles that takes people past Borst Lake and the sports facilities. The Smooth Mile Loop, paved in 2014, is exactly one mile, giving the perfect route to jog or walk and log a mile or a few.
The Borst Park trails give easy access to several areas of the park, including the Borst Dog Park, Demonstration Garden and the historic Borst Home.
As for the park itself, Fort Borst Park is a prominent location and has recently become even more so with its use as part of the Northwest Sports Hub. Several ballfields at the park's complex routinely host baseball and softball games through a variety of organizations. Borst Lake is a popular fishing spot for youngsters, and the Dog Park on site is a popular location for people to let their four-legged friends run free and expend some energy.
