Parks & Recreation


Jackson County offers many recreational opportunities for its young people and adults alike.

Both the cities of Jackson and Wellston sponsor city recreational programs that organize many outdoor youth programs along with some indoor activities.

The city of Jackson is moving forward on enlarging its outdoor facilities with proposed development of the McKitterick Recreational Complex in the northern part of the city. Many of Wellston’s outdoor recreational facilities are located together at the Ball Fields at Veterans Park in an area on the west edge of the city.


A majority of the indoor recreational offerings, especially those in the winter, are available at the Jackson Area YMCA on Main Street.

There are also two golf courses in the county. The 18-hole Franklin Valley Golf Course is open to the public while the Fairgreens Country Club is a private golf course.

Jackson County is also well-known for its other outdoor offerings such as two state parks, hunting, camping and fishing.
