Parks and Recreation

In Moscow, we are very fortunate to have a host of recreational activities right here in our own backyard.  From paved trails, to established parks, to local recreation facilities both indoors and out, to the great list of programmed offerings, Moscow is a shining example of a community where we can truly work and play. 

Please visit any of the links here to find out more about the parks and recreation offerings we provide and for more information, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 208.883.7084.
