The department has established a city-wide system of parks, open space and recreational facilities that will provide De Pere residents of all ages with adequate, convenient, economically sensible, and high quality/safe recreation and leisure experience on a year-round basis. The department has also established a progressive Urban Forestry program through proper planning, planting and maintenance to provide a better environment for the citizens of De Pere.


The department administers programs and maintains over 400 acres of parks/greenspace which includes two (2) outdoor swimming pools, two (2) trail systems, athletic complex, three (3) boat launch facilities and a community center. The City also owns the De Pere Ice Arena, and cooperates with a management company for its operation. We provide a variety of recreation programs for all ages throughout the community. Programs are provided year-round. I hope you will take some time to view our website and find the information you need to become a PARTICIPANT. Please enjoy your visit and let us know how we can improve.
