Two blocks south of The Kudar is the famous Town Square that serves as the heart of Jackson Hole. Originating as a park in 1934, a year before The Kudar was established, the Town Square is most known for its distinctive arches that serve as gateways to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. The Town Square is bordered by retail shops, restaurants, art galleries, and a variety of local activities. From the nightly Town Square Shootouts to the historic carriage rides around the Town Square, to the Saturday Farmer's Market, it is a summer stop you will not want to miss. Website
Biking is a popular activity in the park. The pathway extends from The Kudar, north to Antelope Flats Road. At Moose Junction the pathway follows the Teton Park Road to the South Jenny Lake area.

The section of the pathway along the National Elk Refuge from Jackson to Gros Ventre Junction is closed from November 1 to April 30 due to elk migration. Website
The National Elk Refuge consists of 24,700 acres and is bounded on the south by the Town of Jackson, on the east by Bridger–Teton National Forest, and on the north by Grand Teton National Park. 47 different mammals have been identified on the refuge, including bison, bighorn sheep, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, coyotes and wolves.
