Dixon Park District

     Welcome to the official website of the Dixon Park District in Dixon, Illinois.  There is much to see and experience, including historic Lowell Park where Ronald Reagan worked as a lifeguard in his youth.  Discover hiking and biking trails, the Nature Center, golf driving range, splash pad, tennis courts, pickleball courts, basketball courts, soccer fields, hockey courts, baseball diamonds, Wooden Wonderland, even your dog has its own park!


Please excuse the road construction inside Lowell Park. A new parking area is under construction for the Ruth Edwards Nature Center, and repairs are being made to the Main Road and the road to Woodcote.  Civil Constructors will begin asphalting the main road on Monday October 24th. There will be no access to the lower portion of the park on Monday, Tuesday and possibly Wednesday.

We will enjoy the repaired roads after they are complete!
