What is the Metro-East Park and Recreation District?

The Metro-East Park and Recreation District’s primary duty is the development, operation, and maintenance of a public system of interconnecting trails and parks throughout the counties comprising the District. Counties that are eligible for inclusion in the District are Madison, St. Clair, Monroe, Clinton, Macoupin, and Jersey counties. The Metro-East Park and Recreation District supplements but does not substitute for the powers and responsibilities of the other parks and recreation systems within the Metro-East District.
