The Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Foundation Board of Directors is a funding source for our city to make Cape Girardeau a wonderful place to play, learn and explore.  Our parks and facilities are a peaceful retreat from the pace and pressures of everyday life, they bring us family picnics, afternoon ball games, long walks, historical and wildlife beauty waiting to be discovered. 

To ensure our parks are enjoyed for years to come, we need your help.  The Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Foundation Board of Directors is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to preserving, growing and enhancing our city's parks and recreational amenities.
