About the Commission
The Eaton County Parks and Recreation Commission is organized and authorized by the Eaton County Board of Commissioners pursuant to Act 261 of the Public Acts of 1965 (PDF). The Commission through its Director of Parks and Recreation administers the on going parks and recreation program.
The first Parks Commission was assembled in 1970, with members being appointed by the Eaton County Board of Commissioners (then called Board of District Supervisors). Since then the Parks Commission has continued to be proactive in helping provide leisure-time recreational activities for all Eaton County citizens.
The purpose of the Parks Commission is to continually identify current recreational uses, secure available lands for recreation, and the protection of open space and natural space for optimal recreational opportunities for all Eaton County citizens.
