Park District

Serving the community of Batavia for more than 45 years, the Batavia Park District manages 350 acres at 40 different sites throughout the city. The most centrally located park, the Riverwalk, is a gathering place for the community. It’s a place where Batavians can listen to a concert, attend a festival, walk through the Wildflower Sanctuary or just sit and enjoy the serenity of the river flowing by.

Across from the Riverwalk is the Depot Museum, a park district site that is dedicated to preserving Batavia’s history. It is located next to the Fox River Trail, a 43-mile system of bike paths along both sides of the scenic Fox River for biking, hiking and cross-country skiing.

In addition to neighborhood parks, the district maintains Hall Quarry Beach, a skateboard park, a dog park, baseball and soccer fields as well as tennis and basketball courts.

With a commitment to “provide leisure experiences that enhance the quality of life,” the park district offers more than 1,000 different programs each year for more than 94,000 participants.

The Batavia Park District proves that a successful park system builds civic pride and has a positive economic impact on the community.
