The goal of the park system is “to recognize the many benefits of parks and recreation to promote healthy life styles, relieve environmental stress, attract tourists, offer recreational outlets for youth, attract retirees, enhance property values, and help preserve the natural environment.”
Owosso’s parks are vibrant and continuously improving. The city park system consists of approximately 250 acres with 90 different facilities and attractions dispersed over its 12 parks. From the one acre Fayette Square to the 164 acre Collamer Park, Owosso serves the community’s various needs and neighborhoods.
The City of Owosso has an official parks and recreation plan that has an inventory of the park system, establishes a vision, and makes recommendations for future improvements and programming. The parks and recreation plan, adopted in 2006 and amended in 2011 and 2017, contains detailed information concerning the park system of the city. The Owosso Parks and Recreation Commission was established to assist in realizing the vision of the park plan. This group of seven engaged citizens meets monthly at city hall to work with the community on establishing new facilities, responding to issues, and making recommendations to the city council.
