The mission of the Murray-Calloway County Parks and Recreation is to provide opportunities in leisure and recreational activities in safe and educational environments. To conserve natural resources, and to provide facilities, services, and parks that enhance the quality of life of individuals, families, and the community while preserving aesthetic values in our community and maintaining a commitment to excellence in customer service and satisfaction.
In 2007, Murray-Calloway County Parks developed and implemented a park ranger program. Each ranger brings their own professional style of law enforcement to the department and provides a safe and secure environment for all our park patrons. Our rangers, patrol all park facilities, provide information about park events, have a first aid kit in their patrol cars, and educate guests on park policies and procedures. They also have special “Junior Park Ranger” badges for our younger park visitors!
The Murray-Calloway County Park Board is made up of twelve individuals, equally appointed by the Murray City Council and the Calloway County Fiscal Court.
