Grenola is located in southwestern Elk Countyjust south of US 160 . The town is nestled in the valley of the Big Caney river. The dirt road down this valley from Grenola to Cedar Vale is beautiful in spots; get a good map first. Downtown has a nice wide brick main street with playground equipment and horseshoe lanes in a small park. When you get down to Grenola, check out Freedom Park Recreation Area just west of the gazebo. This was built with donated funds and volunteer labor. It is a large court for tennis, basketball, shuffleboard, skating, etc. A stone marker commemorates Grenola men lost while fighting for our country during time of war. This has all been completed during 2002. A manufacturer of airplane parts started a factory in the old school during 1996 so the future looks brighter!
