Mission Statement

In partnership with the citizens of North Sioux City, SD, the Parks and Recreation Board provides comprehensive parks and recreation programs, facilities and services which respond to changing needs within our communities and assist in beautifying our unique setting as the gateway city to South Dakota. We strive to preserve, enhance and protect our open spaces and main thoroughfares to enrich the quality of life for present and future generations in a safe and secure environment.

Partners With Our Community

Summer Rec Program

Each summer, the Parks and Recreation board sponsors a fun opportunity for students, straight out of school. The program runs in June for four weeks on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The first 100 children registered, from ages 7 to 11 years old, are welcome to participate.

Adoption Programs

In 2011 and 2012 respectively, the City Council approved the board's recommendations to start the Adopt-A-Street and Adopt-A-Park programs. With a great partnership between the residents and businesses, the programs have been quite successful. We have three parks and seven streets which have been adopted and cared for on a regular basis.
