Always Something To Do!  

There is always something to do in Paducah! Every day there are free activities to partake in such as walking or biking the Greenway Trail, taking the family to a playground, going disc golfing at Stuart Nelson Park, or taking pictures of the beautiful scenery along the Ohio River at Schultz Park. Share your experience on social media by using #AlwaysSomethingToDo or tagging Paducah Parks when posting.

This video introduces Paducah Parks & Recreation as we stand by our mission to provide an affordable and positive comprehensive system of recreation programs designed to enhance the quality of life for the residents of the City of Paducah as well as surrounding communities.
