Elroy is the focal point of hiking, biking and snowmobile trail use in the region, as a number of major recreational trails meet in the city. The ‘400’ State Trail, Elroy-Sparta State Trail and the Juneau County Omaha Trail all begin or end in this quaint community. All trails are built on abandoned rail beds with the Elroy-Sparta Trail being the first ‘Rails to Trails’ project in the United States.
Playgrounds are located at Schultz City Park, Royall Schools, The Commons and Legion Park.
