As we enter 2019, there are many great things happening at Paducah Parks & Recreation. We will be updating our Master Plan in 2019 and there will be ways for you to provide input, so stay tuned!

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 or programs we offer, please share your experience on social media by using #alwayssomethingtodo or tagging Paducah Parks when posting.

Paducah Parks & Recreation is looking forward to having a phenomenal year in 2019, and we hope you find that there is always something to do while you’re in Paducah.
