Markey Township

Parks & Recreation

Markey Memorial Park

There is a dog park, K-9 Corners, in the northwest corner of the park. A large pavilion with bathrooms and two barbecues for public use is located near the play structures. There are 2 ball fields, Meibeyer Field and Cameron Field. We recently added a bird and butterfly garden near the large pavilion.

Playground equipment includes a 100 ft. Zip Line, Gaga Ball, a tether ball, swings, a backhoe digger, 3 play structures, 18-hole disc golf, horseshoe pits and volleyball. We also have a one mile fitness path with 11 fitness stations.

Truman Gardner Park

At the park you will find two new asphalt tennis courts, with lines for pickle ball, a basketball court, shuffle board, horseshoes, a pavilion with two barbecues, and various playground equipment, including a tether ball. Sports equipment is available for use in the park. Pick up a basketball, horse shoes, tennis racket, or shuffleboard set at the Country Peddler Store across from the park. Your $5.00 deposit is refunded at the time equipment is returned in good condition by 8:00pm.

About our Parks

We also welcome donations of money for the purchase of additional picnic tables, benches and additional equipment. A great way to
memorialize a family member.

We have added “Little Free Libraries” at each park and would appreciate donations of children and young adult books. This is a free exchange

Volunteers and suggestions are encouraged for ideas and help in developing both parks.

Dog Bone Plaques with your dog(s) name will be hung on the shelter at the K-9 Corners for a $20 donation. Fill out the flyer below if interested.

Each park has two pavilions which are now reservable.

This committee meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 10:00am at the Township Hall.
