Coined “Playtown U.S.A.” in 1946 by the Athletics Institute, Decatur has earned a national reputation for the Park District’s excellent programs, facilities, events, staffing, and community partnerships. 60+ years later, the Decatur Park District continues to enhance the lives of all in the greater-Decatur area. Be active, stay healthy and have fun with team sports like baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse and cheerleading or individual sports such as golf, tumbling, tennis, swimming and track and field. The park district offers plenty of camps and clinics to get involved in as well!
