Since 1910, the Fargo Park Board has been committed to providing quality recreational and leisure services at an affordable price to improve the quality of life for all residents of Fargo. What started as a patch of land has flourished into a citywide visual treat.  With over 2,100 acres of land, the Fargo Park District takes pride in planting and maintaining the beautiful green space and facilities of Fargo. This includes numerous parks, trails, complexes, golf courses and camping.  The impact of the Fargo Park District goes far beyond green grass and pretty flowers. We also offer over 1,000 programs and over 70 special events, impacting the community in many different ways.

The Fargo Park District has an elected committee of five board members. Meeting both in small committees and monthly as an entire board, they discuss current issues facing the district and establish district policies. The day to day operations are managed by the Executive Director of Parks and Recreation. The district itself is divided into the Finance Department, Recreation Department, Parks Department, Cultural Activities Department, Human Resources & Payroll, Valley Senior Services and Courts Plus Community Fitness.
