Welcome to the Greater Muhlenberg Parks and Recreation System. With the help of the Felix E. Martin, Jr. Foundation and along with county, school, and city officials, a dedicated steering committee set forth in 2011 to create a county-wide parks and recreation system. The system is dedicated to providing a balance of active recreation, passive recreation, facilities and natural environments that are equitably distributed throughout Muhlenberg County. Our goal is to also provide programs, activities, and special events that appeal to a wide variety of interests so as to engage as many residents as possible. We plan to partner with community organizations, the school district, and current programs and activities to enhance and expand the recreational experience and services of your county.
Our Mission Statement:
The Muhlenberg County Parks and Recreation System is committed to providing a high quality of life for all residents by providing access to an interconnected and outstanding system of scenic parks, active and passive recreation areas, facilities, programs, and services in a manner that promotes character building, is cost effective, aesthetical pleasing, environmentally conscious, and efficient.
Note from the Director
I am thrilled and excited to be a central figure in such a worthy endeavor as the creation of a county parks and recreation system. It has been a two year process of interviews, public forums, and needs assessments that have lead us to this point. We are most thrilled that the number one need, a centrally located large county park, is coming to fruition. That does not mean we will forget about our little neighborhood parks, they will also be improved. Click on the hotspots above to learn more about these projects.
I look forward to beginning programming and special events but will need the communities help. We are seeking out volunteers, coaches, and instructors. If you have any special skills that you would like to share with the community please contact me. The board of directors and I invite you to search through this website and get involved in our plans, capital projects, and programs. We are starting from the ground up, and this is a grass-roots organization that will only grow stronger with the community, as a whole, involvement. Please feel free to contact me at any time and GET INVOLVED. Together we can make Muhlenberg County not only a great place to live but also a popular destination and beautiful place to visit.
