Parks & Recreation
Play, Explore, Enjoy.
The Saugatuck Township Parks and Recreation Commission guides, shapes, and preserves the heritage of our natural areas for the purpose of play, exploration, and appreciation.
The Parks and Recreation Program is funded by a Parks and Trails millage approved by the voters and is over seen by the a 5-person elected Commission.
For information on meeting times/locations, agendas, and information on our elected Commissioners, please visit our Parks Commission page.
Recreation programming is performed by a variety of partners including: the Saugatuck Public Schools Community Recreation Department, the Saugatuck-Douglas District Library, Saugatuck-Douglas History Center, Douglas Downtown Development Authority, Saugatuck Douglas Area Business Association, Saugatuck Center for the Arts, the Ox-bow School of Art, and other civic organizations. The Saugatuck Public Schools Community Recreation Department administers the area’s Recreation Programs
Saugatuck Township, The City of the Village of Douglas, City of Saugatuck, and Saugatuck Public Schools all operate and maintain separate public parks or recreational facilities. However, all four partners cooperate on recreation planning and recreation programming, and many facilities are shared or are under joint use agreements.
