A Note From the Director



Marshall Parks & Recreation Department strives to provide Marshall residents and visitors with quality parks, creative programming, walking trails, and extraordinary services that will enhance the quality of life for you and your family.

We are committed to ensuring every resident has an opportunity to experience the outstanding recreational activities and parks facilities our community has to offer. Where people can play disc golf, basketball, a round of golf, walk our trails, swim, and utilize our state of the art All-Inclusive playground. We continually seek ways to improve upon the services we offer for the positive development and well-being of the community.

The key to running a successful department is having the ability to strike a balance between young and old, traditional and innovative, while creating a positive culture. Keeping in mind, our employees continually strive to honor the past while embracing the challenges of the future and to serve an entire community, while maintaining meaningful connections with individuals.

In our hectic lives, it is easy to forget that taking time to enjoy each day is important to our health and well-being. Marshall Parks and Recreation is committed to serving the residents by providing an opportunity to experience recreational activities that enhance the quality of life by enjoying the green space, build relationships with people, and being proud of what Marshall has to offer.

Thank you for visiting our site and for your support of parks. I encourage you to live an active healthy lifestyle, because the benefits are priceless. Get out and enjoy all the beauty that surrounds you in our parks!
