Parks & Recreation

In 1947, the Lions Club of Stockton purchased 11 acres of land in the heart of our village, and created what is known today as the Stockton Township Memorial Park. The Lions Club installed electric lights, planted ninety-four trees, added a Park House, and in 1955, graciously deeded the park to the Village of Stockton, where it has continued to grow and thrive. The park boasts top of the line playground equipment, a baseball diamond, and a football field where, most Friday nights, you can catch the fever of a local high school game. The Stockton Township Memorial Park also plays host to Stockton’s Annual 4th of July Celebration, the 4th largest Independence Day celebration in all of Illinois. And let’s not forget the pool. The Stockton Township Pool has two water slides, a zero-gravity entrance, a twelve-foot deep end, and a diving board perfect for both flipping and flopping. Time to play!

Kidstown Wooden Playground


The wooden, kid-friendly haven was built by Stockton Community members in only five days.  It took a year to organize and raise the funds necessary to build the park, but once the funds were collected, local businesses and individuals came together and donated both their tools and their time in order to build the play area. Hundreds of Stocktonites worked together during those five days to establish the park, which stands to this day as an example of the joy a community can create when all of its' citizens work together.
