    Oak Ridge boasts a network of greenways and trails enjoyed by hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and cyclists from throughout the region, and a new Natural Assets Guidebook outlines a long-term vision for creating an urban trail system that will be among the best in the nation, for a city of any size. The city’s rowing venue on Melton Lake, in cooperation with the Oak Ridge Rowing Association, hosts NCAA competitions and numerous classes and camps for rowers of all ages. Residents enjoy playgrounds, a massive outdoor public pool, skate park, disc golf, and ballfields for soccer, baseball, and football.
