It is the purpose and objective of the Wood River Parks & Recreation Department to provide wholesome recreation to the entire range of citizens within and surrounding our community. It is our goal to develop and to provide leadership for these services at the lowest possible cost and continue to run our Golf Course and Aquatic Center as profit producing enterprises. The Recreation Programs are also self-supporting without any undue burden to our taxpaying citizens.  

Wood River Parks & Recreation programs and facilities are available to all citizens regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. Reasonable accommodations may be requested to provide participation in desired programs and activities. If you have a disability and would like more information and support accessibility of programs and facilities, call 251-3130 or check out our website:

 “Pledge of Satisfaction – Guarantee” We pledge to give you the highest quality programs, goods and services possible. If you are not satisfied with the service you have received at any of our Parks & Recreation facilities, we will promptly and positively correct the issue. We strive to give you more for your money as well as quality recreation services.

Our leisure service patrons are the most important part of our job. As always, we thank you for your patronage and support for our programs. We look forward to serving you again this year.
