  • Personal benefits of strengthening self-esteem and self-image, improving health and fitness, and reducing stress in an enjoyable atmosphere
  • Social benefits of building stronger families, creating community spirit, promoting opportunities to develop new friendships, and providing positive alternatives for all segments of the community
  • Environmental benefits of protecting and rehabilitating natural areas and open space, and contributing to overall community livability
  • We strive to provide parks and facilities which are safe and attractive and offer recreation programs that are enjoyable and meaningful. We look forward to working with other area agencies and departments to help enhance the overall quality of life. We believe in being honest, positive, and responsive to the needs and interests of the public.

No Trash Cans at the Facilities

There are no garbage cans at Sparta Recreation’s parks facilities, due to the escalating bear issue with the garbage. We are carry in and carry out until further notice. Please do not leave any garbage bags in the park. Thank you.
