Greetings and Welcome to the Cahokia Parks Department

We are fortunate in our community to have two beautiful and historic parks that are available to the residents of Cahokia and our visitors.  We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of service.  We strive to provide a fun and safe environment in our properly maintained parks to meet the social, cultural and physical needs of our community. We also strive to preserve the beauty of the parks and most importantly, to bring children and families into our parks and give them a reason to stay and play for a lifetime.

In addition to being a fun place to gather, our parks give all of us a chance to improve our physical and mental well-being and to develop our children and youth by focusing on our environment and making a positive impact on our great Village.
