Parks & Recreation

Stockton Park District

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!
