With 8 parks and more than 273.5 acres of recreational space, residents can enjoy virtually any outdoor activity. Many of the parks already have available amenities such as BBQ grills, shelters, parking, and restrooms for outings and picnics. Through a substantial corporate donation from both BP and Triad Industries, the City was able to replace most of its playground equipment with state-of-the-art equipment area children will enjoy for years to come. Additionally, the convenient location of the parks throughout the City allows children safe access to basketball courts, soccer, baseball/softball fields, and playgrounds that are close to home.
For information regarding renting a shelter for an outdoor gathering in one of the city parks, please contact the Parks & Recreation Dept at (618) 251-3130.
