The Marshall Parks and Recreation Department welcomes you to our website. The best public park in the Midwest is ready to serve. Our crews have worked hard with general maintenance and up-keep of all our facilities. Marshall has one of the best public 18-hole golf courses--ready to challenge golfers of all levels. The Aquatic Center has multiple slides, zero-depth entry and a separate diving well. Our 18-hole disc golf course has recently been expanded to 36-holes. Our park also includes the Skate Park, which is open every day that weather permits. The landscape and flowers are in full bloom throughout the spring and summer and our shelters are available to rent year round.
The parks are open for comfort, relaxation, and family entertainment in a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. Activities are planned for all ages and venues. We would love to have volunteers assist with our programs. Help us build a stronger community!
The Marshall Parks and Recreation Department and Park Board will strive to be fiscally responsible in maintaining and expanding facilities, land and programs accessible to the citizens of Marshall and Saline County.

The Marshall Parks and Recreation Department has a storied past. I believe that you can’t know where you are going unless you know where you have been. It all began in 1933. On March 20, 1933 on the recommendation of Mayor Joe F. Swisher, the Marshall City Council approved the purchase of 110 acres from Ralph, Juanita and George Duggins for $5,000. The purchase of this land was not looked upon with much favor among the citizens of Marshall, as this land was commonly referred to as “goat hill”. Since this purchase there have been many changes and improvements to our parks. These Leaders had a vision. They knew that for the Marshall to be a viable, thriving community that people needed to relax, unwind and recreate. You can learn more about the history of the parks and our facilities here.
As we continue to upgrade and improve our facilities and programs, the Park Board and staff is committed to providing the citizens of Marshall with quality that’s expected, a comfortable, relaxing family entertainment in a safe and welcoming environment. The Marshall Parks and Recreation Master Plan of 2014 is our road map to our future.
Thank you for visiting our site and for your support of your parks. Get out and enjoy all the beauty that surrounds you in our parks!
