Our Mission/History

The Wood County Recreation Commission was established on September 17, 1945.  This was a joint effort by the Wood County Commission, Wood County Board of Education, City of Parkersburg, and City of Vienna.  The goal:  to provide quality, affordable recreational opportunities to the residents of Wood County and surrounding areas.  (Vienna withdrew from the Wood County Recreation Commission in 1985 and formed Vienna Recreation)

You may drive through the park during the summer and witness us sitting outside our office.  Please do not just assume we are not working.  With just a staff of two we are often working 10 or 12 hour days.  During the summer we run a Playground Program in the large shelter across from our office, a Tennis program at the Tennis Court and manage the Mini Golf.  We are sitting outside watching Mini Golf for customers if there is not a staff person scheduled due to budget or watching the Playground Program.  Also, sometimes we are just on our lunch break but still working, by answering phones, waiting on clients, working Mini Golf, etc.  So Please…don’t just assume we are not working.  We work 24/7.  Thank you J

The Wood County Recreation Commission has been committed to offering you quality, affordable recreation opportunities since 1945.
