Duties

It is the duty of the Parks & Recreation Department to provide park and recreation facilities that serve the needs of Perry County residents and encourage and promote tourism. This is done by developing and maintaining the public lands designated as parks of Perry County for the use of its residents and visitors.

The Perry County Parks & Recreation Department consists of 5 park facilities ranging in size from 1 acre to 128 acres. These facilities are located along the Ohio River Scenic Byway (Hwy 66) on the southern and eastern sides of Perry County. Some amenities available at our parks consist of a scenic overlook of the Ohio River and Cannelton Locks & Dam, two public boat launches, walking trails, shelter houses, and restroom facilities.

The Perry County Parks & Recreation Department is operated by a full-time Director and a five-member Board of Directors. The Board meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. at the Perry County Courthouse.

Any questions can be directed to the Director using the contact information given.
