Parks & Recreation

The mission of the Cheney Parks & Recreation Department is to create community through people, parks and programs.

We are updating the City's Parks & Recreation plan which will affect future programs and facilities development.  Please help us determine how we will grow forward by completing our survey (which will take approximately 5 minutes):

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.


 Inclement Weather & Holiday Closure

If inclement weather causes a two-hour delay of the Cheney School District, all programs that begin prior to noon will be cancelled. All afternoon and evening programs will continue to run. If the Cheney Public Schools are closed, all Parks & Recreation programs will also be cancelled for the day. If programs are held on weekends, a decision will be made by 8:00 a.m. and posted on the City web site, Facebook page, and a voice message will be left at 509-498-9251. Classes will not meet locally observed holidays unless otherwise noted by instructor.


Non-Discrimination Policy

The City of Cheney does not discriminate against any person on the basis of sex in the operation, conduct, or administration of community athletic programs and facilities.  Any citizen who feels he or she has been the victim of discriminatory treatment in violation of this policy should report their concern to the Parks & Recreation Director at (509) 498-9295  for appropriate investigation.
