Coopers Commons is our town park located on the Southside of Spencer near the White River.  The park includes two playgroundCoopersCommons-300x199 areas, open fields, and shelter houses.  Coopers Commons was the location of the first farmers’ market and site of the annual Riverfront Festival in August hosted by the Owen County Preservations.

Coopers Commons has recently become the site of the start head for the MyPath trail, a multi-use path, and trail system.

The Owen County Community Foundation (OCCF), the Owen County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) and the OwenMyPath-300x225 County Family YMCA have joined to create a multi-use path and trail system to enhance recreational opportunities and improve safety on major walking routes for the residents of Spencer and Owen County.  While the MyPath Trail System is a multi-phase construction process over several years, the first phase, Riverfront Trail, opened June 3, 2016.  Later in 2016 the trailhead shelter house will be constructed in Cooper Commons Town Park. …more information
