Programs & Registration

The Benefits of Recreation are Endless..


The Macomb Park District strives to develop programs that promote health, wellness, socialization, motivation, and innovation, along with an understanding and appreciation for the outdoors. Aiming to implement activities that are built to the specific development needs and age related interests, it is our goal to establish a program basis that will engross, engage, entertain, and excite the residence of Macomb.
