Welcome to the Jefferson City Parks & Recreation Page!  

   Located at the Jefferson City Community Center, the Jefferson City Parks and Recreation Department is a full-time comprehensive recreation department serving the residents of the city, as well as the surrounding communities.  Serving the recreational needs of the citizens of Jefferson City in a creative, cost efficient way is the primary goal of the department.  The department provides facilities for Little League baseball and softball, AYSO soccer, and the Jefferson City Swim Club.  The maintenance and recreation staff are responsible for all field and park maintenance, as well as maintenance for the community center.
   I would like to invite everyone to stop by for a visit and discover everything the Parks and Recreation Department has to offer.
