"Great effort springs
from great attitude."
Coach Pat Riley
Our goal in Parks & Recreation is to keep a high level of maintenance on all city owned parks, sports fields & facilities.
We host many fishing, soccer & softball tournaments in addition to Decatur Youth Soccer Association, National League Dixie Youth Baseball, American League Dixie Youth Baseball, Dizzy Dean Baseball & Northwest Baseball Leagues, Dixie Girls Softball League, Decatur Youth Football and many more community sports programs.
The Maintenance Department maintains over 1,000 acres of sports turf, Parks, right-of-ways, ditches & alleys. In addition, our staff performs tree maintenance on all trees located on city owned property and right-of-ways. Other maintenance responsibilities include Carrie Mathews Recreation Center, Fort Decatur Recreation Center, Aquadome Recreation Center & Pool, T.C. Almon Recreation Center, Decatur City Cemetery, Garth Cemetery & Old State Bank.
We currently have an experienced staff of 6 people that have turf & horticulture college degrees who perform work on all sports turf, landscaping, greenhouse propagation & irrigation sites.
Our ballfield maintenance staff maintains 16+ soccer fields, 15 baseball fields, 13 softball fields and 2 football/soccer multi-purpose fields. We have hosted both the NAIA Softball & Soccer Tournaments at Wilson Morgan Complex and Jack Allen Recreation Complex.
Our Park crew maintains over 125 acres in 18+ community parks located throughout Decatur. These parks include playgrounds, pavilion reservations for parties, tennis courts, basketball courts, splash pads and many more park amenities. Call 256-341-4930 for information on our parks.
We take great pride in offering the best quality sports facilities & parks for the Decatur Community and the thousands of visitors who travel to Decatur for a sports related event or to enjoy the Point Mallard Water Park in the summer.
