Lu-Ray Park & Amphitheater


Located in downtown Central City,


The Lu-Ray Park & Amphitheater is a wonderful addition to the landscape of our city.

This open-air facility with its park-like setting includes a paved walking trail, outdoor amphitheater with seating of up to 5000, a structured concession stand and restroom facilities, a Veterans memorial and a covered outdoor pavilion complete with water and electric.

Our mission for this facility is to provide a place for families to come together for wellness with the new walking trail and to provide an atmosphere of unity within the community by offering events that bring family and friends together.

Veterans Memorial


The Veterans Memorial pays homage to our five branches of military service.  Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy are symbolized with a statue and memorial brick pavers fill the area In Honor and In Memory of those who have made a sacrifice on behalf of our country.
