Parks & Recreation

The Parks and Recreation Department maintains eight parks on over 100 acres. Located within these parks are 27 holes of disc golf, nine baseball/softball fields, several playground areas, three paved walking trails, 11 shelters, the Boswell Aquatic Center, Nelson Pond, and a skate park.

The Parks Department also works with various groups like the YMCA, American Red Cross, and other civic organizations to host various events that include 5k runs, drive in movies, baseball/softball tournaments, and Kids Fishing Day.

The department also benefits from the graciousness of donations and volunteers.

Reservations & Cancellations

We are currently working to update the way payments are processed for Shelter Reservations. We apologize for any inconvenience please read the info below on how to best reserve a parks shelter.

To rent a shelter go to the facilities list, or click on any of the City Parks links below, and find the shelter you would like to rent. Once you have chosen a shelter to rent click "Request Reservation" above the calendar at the bottom of the shelter's page. The on screen displays will guide you through the request process. After the Parks Department receives your request they will contact you to finalize your reservation. Remember each parks page will have a list of available shelters available at that park, and you can request to reserve that shelter from there.

If you want to reserve your shelter in person you may do so at the Parks Department Office at Atchley or by calling them at (417) 991-2222.

To rent the Mills Center or the Wallace Building call the Civic Center at (417) 532-4642.
