Welcome to Marion County Parks and Recreation!
Parks and Recreation proudly maintains over 40 park sites, which include everything from boating and swimming access, sports fields, hiking trails and one-of-a kind play areas for children of all abilities.
Discover the crystal clear waters of the Rainbow River on a kayak or paddleboard. Gather the family for a night to remember under the stars. Retreat from the daily grind with a trek on a hiking trail. There is so much to discover right here in Marion County!
We're more than just parks
Take a break from the routine and from the technology that's constantly buzzing. Reconnect with yourself, your family and with nature! Our recreation programs offer fun and exciting experiences for children, adults and families. Channel your inner archer with Archery 101, take a subterranean journey through White Cliff Caves, join our staff on a guided kayak outing or make new friends by joining our flag football or co-ed softball league!
