What role does Jackson County Parks + Rec department play in making the community stronger, more vibrant and more resilient?
Parks are essential to a healthy community. It is important that Jackson County Parks + Rec makes sure that all people have access to our parks, lakes and outdoor programming. Our motto is Make You Day Here, always with the expectation of providing the best quality of life experiences possible.
Our Parks connect communities through our more than 150 miles of trail. They promote community wellness by getting people outdoors and exercising, as well as providing beautiful green spaces enriching mental health.
Parks + Rec’s playgrounds provide safe places for kids to play and build social interaction.
Our lakes, campgrounds, golf course, sports complexes, historic sites and Special Populations activities provide destinations for so many fun-filled recreational opportunities.
In addition to the many recreational and environmental benefits, Parks create an economic benefit for both governments and individuals. Proximity to Parks increases property value, thereby increasing property tax revenue. Parks are always at the top of families lists when looking to relocate.
I invite you all to enjoy the many benefits of your Jackson County Parks and let us Make Your Day!
