The Fredericktown Recreation District was organized in 1980 and since that time has seen tremendous growth and expansion in both area and services. The FRD is a Joint Recreation District and encompasses the same area as the Fredericktown School District and we how have approximately 130 acres in the Park District. We serve almost nine thousand people in our district and operate on a 1.5 mil levy supported by the residents of the District. Much of the growth and expansion in the parks are due to the “we can do in a small town” attitude and the generosity and support of local groups, organizations, businesses and individuals.
The parks are developed and maintained at the current level today due to the help, generosity and support of local groups, organizations, businesses and individuals.
