 Like most municipalities, the City of Ravenswood spends a considerable amount of its tie providing basic services, such as water and sewer, street maintenance, and police and fire protection. However, the City of Ravenswood realizes it most make the City inviting so people will want to live there, take pride in their City, and become active in the community. 

 It is important for the City to make itself and its activities inviting for not only its citizens but also to give back to the community members and provide them with entertainment they can participate in as a family.  

 One such area this can be done is in recreational activities which can be available for people of all ages. 

 “We are always on the 

lookout for new and exciting upgrades and opportunities for the Ravenswood Parks”, commented City Councilwoman Denise Toler. 

 “The Board of Parks and Recreation (BOPAR) is active throughout the entire year. In addition to municipal parks, riverfront parks, city pool, ball parks and shelters, activities include Harvest in the Wood, Raid on Ravenswood (Civil War Reenactment), Dr. Suess Birthday Party with the local library and many other fairs and festivals,” commented Ravenswood City Mayor Josh Miller.  

 The grant was made possible through the Jackson County Community Support Fund.
