Paducah Parks & Recreation...Always Something to Do!

Check out this video introducing Paducah Parks & Recreation. There are many great things happening at Paducah Parks & Recreation. A major project just completed in February of 2020 was the update of our Master Plan. We encourage you to read through this document.

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. When you take advantage of any of these activities, parks, or programs we offer, share your experience on social media by using #AlwaysSomethingToDo or tagging Paducah Parks when posting.

We hope you find that there is always something to do while you’re in Paducah.
