Parks & Recreation
The mission of the Cheney Parks & Recreation Department is to create community through people, parks and programs.
The Cheney Parks & Recreation Department offers recreation activities, trips and classes for all ages, and after-school programs for youth.
Cheney has over 40 acres of municipal developed park land which includes an outdoor swimming pool, many playgrounds and picnic areas, as well as athletic fields.
We offer a year-round recreation program with a variety of classes for all ages.
In the immediate surrounding area, there are many lakes and streams for fishing, boating and swimming.
There is a 3.5-mile paved recreational trail (Fish Lake Trail) immediately adjacent to Cheney for bicyclists, roller blades and walking.
Cheney Parks & Recreation offers activities for all ages, from youth to adults and senior citizens. Whether you are looking for health and fitness activities, crafts, cultural outings, or adult education -- we have it all!
