Parks & Recreation

In a place so blessed by nature, it's hard to stay indoors for very long.

The abundance of natural beauty makes Jamestown a great place for an outdoor excursion, no matter what time of year.  Jamestown is home to a variety of city parks with areas for picnic, biking, hiking, disc golf and romantic locations for wedding ceremonies and reunions.  When the snow starts falling, Jamestown transforms into a winter wonderland enoyed while ice skating, ice fishing, snowmobiling and sledding.

Birding is abundant and popular;  Stutsman County is the site of some outstanding - often illusive - sightings. All types of wildlife and nature studies, tours, sketching, photography and other opportunities for appreciating natural beauty thrive in Jamestown year-round.

The Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to providing and preserving the highest quality of parks and program services for our citizens as possible with the resources available.
