Welcome to our website. If you are looking to explore the great outdoors, you have come to the right place. Knox County Park District’s parks, water trails and area multi-use trails provide the public with an abundance of nature activities such as hiking, fishing, canoeing, biking and picnicking, as well as meaningful educational experiences. Knox County Park District’s success is in large part due to the Knox County citizens reaffirming their support and commitment to parks and trails by passing a levy in 2017. The Board of the Knox County Park District thanks voters for their continued support.
The purpose of the Knox County Park District it to: acquire, conserve and manage Knox County natural resources in a manner that preserves the rural character of the county, while protecting the county’s unique historical and natural resources. We hope you enjoy our site and leave with an appreciation for what many of our residents and visitors already realize — Knox County Park District is a great place to live and visit.
There are many who visit our park systems on a daily or weekly basis and discover many things ranging from animals to wildflowers to trees and geocaches. We enjoy seeing those discoveries as many of our patrons are photographers and enjoy capturing those images. The Park District invites you to share your photos and use the hashtag #throughthelensofourparkdistrictfriends titled “through the lens of our park district friends” as we highlight photos of travelers from near and far who enjoy our parks.
