Argos Park Board

The Argos Park Board provides oversight for the Argos Department of Parks & Recreation. The Argos Park Board meets every third Thursday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at the Town Building.

We are very proud of our parks. Memorial Park on South Michigan Street is a nice place to have a picnic while the kids play. Community Park has a 1.3-mile paved walking trail for you to enjoy along with a fishing pond, splash pad, and lots of playground equipment for the kids. Foker Park has a large pond for fishing and has just gone through an upgrade with a new paved walking trail, parking lot, restrooms, playground equipment and more.
