Marion Park District

Totaling 112 acres, the park district is comprised of 7 local parks, a dog park, a pickleball complex, a soccer complex, an aquatic center, and a disc golf course.




From early spring through late fall, explore a variety of sports from adult and youth softball and baseball leagues to bags and pickleball. The district hosts many tournaments throughout the year such as the annual Whirlwind Soccer tournament and Marion Marlins Swim Meets.


All Marion Parks feature playground equipment but the most impressive is the Inclusive Playground at Ray Fosse Park. This is truly a play space universally designed so ALL children and families can play together, with no physical or social barriers.
