Cascade Park  differs  from  the  other  parks  within  the City   because Cascade Park is a large (72.26 acres) family or group oriented park containing a dance pavilion, large picnic grounds, several concessions, and can be used for large major events that accommodate thousands of people.  There are several leases within Cascade Park, one of which sells Italian Lemon Ice.

Sylvan Heights Golf Course is part of the Parks and Recreation Department.  The golf course includes 18 holes, putting  green, and full line Pro Shop.  Sylvan Heights offers weekday and weekend specials.  Sylvan Heights not only serves the residents of New Castle, but those of the neighboring municipalities.  This facility, like Cascade Park, is a regional attraction .  Phone:  724.658.8021.
