Alexandria Community Park has over 80 acres that were originally part of the Alexandria Reservoir. A walking trail circles the nine-acre fishing lake. This park features baseball fields, basketball courts, play area as well as miles of paved walking trails. This park hosts an annual Easter Egg Hunt, Fishing Derby, Halloween Haunted Walk and a Christmas Tree Lighting. Tribute Park is a small area that pays homage to all who serve our country – from armed services to the police, firefighters and EMS teams. There are commemorative bricks in this park that serve as personal tributes.
Alexandria has tennis and track facilities available through the public schools. Six miles from the city is a county park offering fishing, golfing, camping, picnicking and swimming. The nearby Ohio and Licking Rivers also offer water activities. Sports are plentiful and amateur softball and soccer games can be seen all summer.
The Alexandria Community Center offers fitness classes as well as other programs. Many residents enjoy a walking membership at the center.
