Governing Body

The Memorial Park District is a separate governing unit which levies its own tax to provide park facilities and recreation for the residents of the district. Innovative leadership starts with our community-elected, five member Board of Commissioners. Members of the Board of Commissioners are elected to 6 year terms and serve without compensation. Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 4:30 pm, at the Stevenson Fitness Center board room. The public is always welcome to attend the open meetings and is encouraged to participate.

Insurance Information

The park district is unable to assume responsibility for injuries, accidents, or loss of personal property occurring at programs, activites, parks and facilities. The park district does not carry hospitalization insurance for program participants. Such insurance would make user fees prohibitive. your individual health policy must cover your medical needs.


  1. No Cash Refunds.
  2. Credit will be issued to persons withdrawing from park district programs. A $10 Service Fee applies.
  3. Credit requests will be made prior to the start of a class or program. If the class has begun, a prorated amount will be determined.
