Our Mission Statement: 

It is the purpose of the Sandwich Park District to efficiently and economically provide recreational programs, facilities, and open space which are designed to provide wholesome, constructive and enjoyable leisure time experiences that benefit the individual resident and the community of Sandwich as a whole.




Lightning Detection

We now have five units and they are located at; Knights Park, Prairie View Elementary, Memorial Park, Veterans Park and the high school concession building. Most of the units are programmed to turn on at 8:00am and off at 9:00pm. The ones at Memorial Park and the high school concession building turn off at 10:00pm due to having lights available for late night activities. When lightning is detected the horn sounds for 15 seconds, only one time. After 30 minutes if no lightning is present the three “all clear” horns sound.




The splash pad CLOSED on Sept. 11th and will re-open on Memorial Day 2018 pending good weather. We hope you had fun this summer and thank you for keeping the park clean.

TENNIS COURTS: The Tennis Courts are OPEN!  Court no. 1 and 2 have lines for Tennis and Pickleball.
