Parks & Recreation
The mission of the village of Mount Pleasant Parks and Recreation Division is to provide for the health, inspiration and recreation opportunities for the people of Mount Pleasant through the creation and maintenance of high-quality programs, facilities, and special community events. Dedication and preservation of natural resources will ensure the opportunity for high-quality leisure experiences for generations to come.
The village of Mount Pleasant presently operates eight parks totaling over 300 acres of parkland offering a wide variety of recreational activities. Our parks contain baseball diamonds, trails, shelters, and picnic facilities. Generally, parks are available on a first-come, first served basis.
Mount Pleasant also operates a joint park with the village of Caledonia. The Caledonia-Mount Pleasant Park, located on CTH K at CTH H, is available on an area rental basis. For further information, contact the caretaker at (262) 886-0352. The kid-designed 20,000 square foot Kids Connection Community Built playground lies at this park.
The Village of Mount Pleasant Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee meetings take place on the third Thursday of each month at the Mount Pleasant Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive; beginning at 4:00 p.m. Mount Pleasant encourages citizens to attend these public meetings.

Pike River Pathway
The Village of Mount Pleasant through the continuous efforts of the Village Stormwater Commission has developed an off-street recreational trial that runs north and south along the reconstructed Pike River. The trail begins west of Timmer Lane off of Old Spring Street.
The Village of Mount Pleasant has a officially adopted Village of Mount Pleasant Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan 2030 which illustrates existing and proposed on-street and off-street trails throughout the Village. The Village continues to promote a safe and healthy quality of life for all residents and patrons who visit the Village of Mount Pleasant.
The Village Park and Recreation Committee continues to develop funding opportunities for the existing and future needs of the recreation program. The Village has developed a signage program that allows business to donate money to the Park and Recreation program, and in return the Village constructs a sign that is showcased on the Villages softball diamonds from May through September. The Park and Recreation Committee are always open for donations as well.
Thank you to our 2017 Donors! Without your support our programs would not be possible!
