Park Department

The City of McPherson Park Department employees 6 full-time workers who maintain city parks and public rights-of-way totaling over 300 acres. Fourteen parks offer fishing, fitness trails, tennis, jogging paths, picnic shelters, skateboarding, disc golf, swimming and more.

The Parks Department works collaboratively with the McPherson Recreation Commission (MRC) to provide family fun, recreational programs and sport tournaments. Spend an afternoon relaxing at the McPherson Water Park. Cheer for your favorite team at Grant Sport Complex, home to baseball, softball and t-ball fields; two full-size soccer fields; two football fields and a playground. Or catch a baseball game featuring the local high school team at Wall Park Sport Complex, a recreational zone offering four baseball and softball diamonds, batting cages and a children's play area.
