The City of Monroe provides our community with five parks.  Each park provides a unique experience to our citizens and surrounding communities.  Whether you're having a party, a reunion, a special event, or just a day taking advantage of the outdoors, our parks are the perfect spot.  The Parks and Recreation Department manages and operates several shelters available for reservation at each park. All of our parks are open to the public from dawn until dusk.  We hope you enjoy our parks and that they encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.
