Marion County – In celebration of Parks and Recreation Month, Marion County Parks and Recreation will be offering free admission to all Marion County user fee parks, excluding KP Hole, from Monday, July 27 through Friday, July 31.

Most parks in Marion County are free to visit, but seven of the parks that have boat ramps charge user fees.

During the last week of July, families can explore these parks for free, with the exception of KP Hole.


This would include parks such as Carney Island, Hampton Beach, Gores Landing, Moss Bluff North and South, Ray Wayside, and Horseshoe Lake.

Enjoy a walk on some of the 24 miles of paved and unpaved trails that Parks and Recreation maintains, or cool off at one of Marion’s 16 parks with water access. Reconnect with nature, enjoy a picnic, or let your kids explore the playgrounds and sports fields throughout the county.
