The Troy Community Center offers a fitness center, walking and jogging trails, and a picnic pavilion. The Stage Nature Center offers summer camps and naturalist programs.
Troy is serviced mainly by Troy Schools, with a small portion going to either Birmingham or and Avondale Schools - all three are highly rated and offer excellent student achievement programs. Find out more at Schooldigger.com.
