If you love recreation and the outdoors, the community of Sully offers a world of fun waiting to unfold for you! Whether you relish a game of pick-up basketball under the stars or love to relax on a bench while your little ones explore the mysteries of a wood playground structure, the park on the square in Sully will bring you hours of enjoyment. If basketball and playground equipment do not suit your tastes, perhaps a leisurely walk around the well-lit square or a picnic with friends under the shady tree foliage will bring a smile to your face.

Walking for exercise or simply to commune with loved ones is safe and pleasant in Sully with the smoothly paved, brightly illuminated streets of the residential area. Warm evenings find friends and family spending quality time together--biking, skating, playing, walking, and jogging. To add to the recreation, a few blocks southeast of the square is the town ball park complete with two playing fields, a playground with a large sandbox, picnic facilities, and concession stand. You may want to join other community members as they embrace the thrill of games, food, and fun times with friends throughout the summer.
