The Metamora Park District
The Metamora Park District was formed in 1967. Since then, the district has addressed the recreational wants and needs of residents. The district has developed a fine system of parks, the jewel of which is the 450-acre Black Partridge Park. This park features areas of sports fields, playground equipment and pavilion facilities. The trail system through the park provides both an opportunity for recreation and to commune with nature. Smaller parks within the district offer playground equipment and sports fields.
In 1998, the Metamora Swimming Pool, a key part of the district’s recreational facilities, underwent a $900,000 renovation. Besides refurbishing the pool and the deck area, a new kiddie pool, with an umbrella waterfall, new playground equipment and a tubular slide were added as a part of the project.
