Parks and Recreation

The City of Durand Parks System includes over 30 acres of active and passive recreational space. A summary of the facilities offered at each of our parks is described in the table below. Every five years the Parks and Recreation Board reviews its plan for park improvements and new projects. In the year preceding the plan update the board solicits input from residents and stakeholders to discuss those priorities. The DRAFT 2020-2024 Parks and Recreation Plan is now available for public comment. Please forward any comments to the office of the City Manager (cotoole@durandmi.com).
