It's all about "FUN" when you spend a day with Jackson County Parks + Rec. For the land lover, we have one of the largest park systems of any county in the America.

For the water enthusiast, Jackson County is home to fantastic beaches and lakes, with the finest public marinas in Missouri.

We offer our residents and regional neighbors 21,000 acres of premier outdoor enjoyment for "get-away-from-it-all" weekends and memorable vacations.

From boating and biking to hiking and horseback riding, get on the go! From softball and golf, get into the game! From beaches and campgrounds to picnics and fishing, just sit back and relax.

Live History!

Explore the rich history of Jackson County. Fort Osage, built by William Clark in 1808, brings the challenges and excitement of the American frontier vividly to life.

The living history programming at Missouri Town 1855 takes you back to the simple life of a mid-19th century western Missouri community against a backdrop of authentic 150 year old buildings.
