About Us

The Danville Parks and Recreation Department was established in 1913 as a measure to safeguard the wellheads that provide the Town of Danville’s water supply. With over 100 years of history, the Department today has transitioned from a maintenance-based function to a department that increases the quality of life for the community.  

The Department maintains over 165 acres of parkland spread across seven park sites, over 20 miles of paved and recreation trails, a 28,000 ft² community center (Danville Athletic Club), an outdoor aquatic center, and many more recreation-related amenities and facilities.
