Strive to enhance the quality of life of Ogden Dunes citizens by expanding availability of leisure and recreational services and promoting a clean and healthy environment.
The Ogden Dunes Parks and Recreation Department desires to hear from its citizens regarding parks, trails, and leisure activities. We are seeking community volunteers. If interested, please contact the Ogden Dunes Parks and Recreation Department.
The Parks & Recreation Board meets on the third Thursday of every month. Please check the Public Event Calendar for official meeting dates and locations.
The department shall be governed by a Parks and Recreation Board, which shall be known as the “Ogden Dunes Parks and Recreation Board,” which shall consist of four members to be appointed by the President of the Town Council with the advice and consent of the Town Council. No more than two of such appointees shall be of the same political party.

The Board members shall not be compensated for their services but the Town Council may reimburse members for actual expenses incurred in attending meetings dealing with park and recreation problems, provided that the attendance at such meetings was authorized by the majority vote of the Park Board and further provided that all such expenses of all Board members shall not exceed the sum of $500 per annum, which sum shall be appropriated by the Town Council at its next budget meeting for such purposes.
