MISSION STATEMENT…. The Kewanee Park District exists to provide care for public lands and opportunities for personal growth. We work with citizens of Kewanee to provide a broad spectrum of opportunities to renew, restore and recreate, balancing often stressful lifestyles. It is our overall intent to encourage the participation of individuals and families to develop the highest possible level of physical and mental well-being. It is our belief that well-balanced, healthy people contribute to a productive and healthy community.

2017 CHILD’S BEST FRIEND AWARD
The recipients of the 2017 Child’s Best Friend Award were Ken Nelson and Brad Cessna. Ken is the owner of Ken Nelson Construction who did the renovations at Northeast Park. Brad was Ken’s right hand man during the renovations and both gentlemen treated the project as an honor to do rather than a job. Their dedication and generosity during the process to ensure the youth of Kewanee received the best possible park amenities they could have. Thank you to both Ken and Brad! We look forward to a continued partnership in keeping the youth at the forefront.
