Marion Park District

The Marion Park District was established on July 15, 1957. As of 2014, the district serves approximately 17,500 residents who live within the district’s taxing limits.

The park district currently owns and provides services at seven park locations covering approximately 112 acres. We are a member of Illinois Association of Park Districts. There are seven full-time employees, including the director of parks and recreation. During peak Season, the District employs 40 additional workers to provide necessary service and support for park operations and recreation programs.

The district maintains facilities early spring through late fall for sports associations and clubs; sponsors an annual triathlon; and collaborates with other organizations in providing its best to the community.
