Marion Communities Parks & Recreation

Support Our Parks

There are three main organizations that work for the betterment of the Marion Community, each serving an interconnected yet unique role. These include the Recreation Committee, the Marion Park Board and the Marion Community Development Organization (MCDO). Descriptions of each can be found below. Contributions to, and membership and participation in all three organizations is strongly encouraged.


The Recreation Committee has been actively supporting Marion youth programs and local parks since the mid 90’s. It is facilitated by the MCDO. Their goal is to help sustain active programs and the development of all parks in the Marion community. Each year the Recreation Committee distributes approximately $10,000 to the various parks and youth activities in the Marion Community. Their primary fundraiser is the 301 Club.
