“Providing Quality Facilities and Recreational Experiences to the Public”

From its start in 1989, The Schererville Parks and Recreation Department has striven to meet the needs of a growing community and its residents. Since then, it has developed into a department that operates and manages over 260 acres of land in 26 parks, including playgrounds, sports fields and courts, picnic shelters, and paved trails. Our vision is to continue to acquire, develop, and maintain parks and facilities for current and future generations to enjoy.

The Parks & Recreation Department has also grown from its initial offerings of summer youth programs to providing a variety of recreational and leisure activities throughout the year. We offer programs for the whole family and all age groups ranging from early childhood to senior activities. In addition to our numerous programs, the department sponsors and conducts special events for the community such as the Celebrate Schererville Festival, Movies in the Park, Country A-Fair, and many other seasonal celebrations.

We also assist and support community organizations by being the host site for their special events as well as providing and maintaining the home fields for the Schererville Soccer, Schererville Girls Softball, and Schererville Senior Babe Ruth organizations.

Overall, the numerous facilities, recreational programs and events provided by the Parks & Recreation Department contribute directly to the health and well-being of the entire community. We will continue striving to provide the benefits of quality leisure experiences for the public to enjoy. Please take the time to explore our website and discover what the Parks & Recreation Department has to offer. Remember, the Benefits are Endless!
