Marion County

Although neither the city nor county has formal recreation departments or programs, both jurisdictions have recreation facilities. The city maintains a five-acre recreation area located on the north end of Rosa B. Lane. This city park has two lighted tennis courts, a children’s playground, and one basketball court. A 1,000-foot unimproved nature trail connects the north end of the park with State Route 137/Oliver Street. The county maintains three softball fields adjacent to the airport in the south half of the county.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities
The City of Buena Vista has received Transportation Enhancement (DOT) funding to construct a walking path/multi-use trail connecting a public housing complex, the city park (see above), and the county’s middle school in the northern section of the city. The park currently contains an unimproved walking track and nature trail. The nature trail is slated for improvement as part of the Transportation Enhancement grant. Additional facilities used for exercise walking include tracks at Marion Middle School and Palmer School in Buena Vista.
