About Us

The Michigan Association of Parks and Recreation Officials was formed in the early 1970s. Some of the "founding" members were Genesee, Kent, Oakland, Macomb, Ingham, Mecosta and Saginaw Counties.

Our organization provides county parks and recreation agencies and their staff with a sounding board to develop a common voice for issues related to provision of services, programs and facilities at the county level about the State of Michigan.

Our membership includes 33 out of the 83 counties. Meetings are held quarterly and currently rotate throughout the southern half of Lower Michigan. The annual business meeting is held as part of the Michigan Parks and Recreation Association Annual Conference and Trade Show.


MACPRO exists to serve the interests and well-being of county government sponsored park and recreation lands, facilities, and programs across the State of Michigan. It does this through member education, partnering with others of similar interests, legislative advocacy, networking, and promoting awareness and use of county outdoor recreation facilities by Michigan citizens.

Featured Park: Vienna Park
Monroe County Parks and Recreation
Vienna Park in Bedford Township was originally acquired from the state highway department after it was used, in part, as a sand pit for road construction. The park has a small pond and natural area as well as active recreational facilities. A 1999 grant also allowed for the development of trails and new play equipment at this park. In 2001 the disc golf course was improved and expanded to 18 holes. In 2007 and 2008 additional play equipment was installed. Also, in 2007 a new asphalt entrance drive and parking was constructed. All five baseball fields have upgraded fencing for foul lines and backstops.
