The Danville-Boyle County Parks & Recreation Department was established to provide recreational activities for the community, to supervise development of new park land, and to maintain existing park facilities.

The Danville-Boyle County Parks and Recreation Youth Sports Activity Programs have provided, over the past several years, an environment that is nurturing to the young person involved in team competition. The focus of "participation above competition" and "sportsmanship above championship" is clearly defined and placed at the core of each of our youth programs. The Parks and Recreation Department often times provides a voice, a venue and the vision for many young people in our community.

Knowing that each child's interest and ability vary among individuals. Each of our volunteer coaches, are expected to adhere to an atmosphere of meeting the needs of all youth participants. The maximum potential of each participant should be addressed as an attainable goal. This should never be measured in wins and losses.

The Danville-Boyle County Parks and Recreation Department has embraced the concept of a positive sports environment for all of our area youth, no matter their financial, social or educational situation.

The offices of the Parks and Recreation Department are located in the William E. "Bunny" Davis Recreation Complex.  On May 15, 1997, the facilities were named in honor of Mr. Davis (1917-2001), a long-standing supporter of recreational programs in the Danville-Boyle County area.  These facilities have provided the public with step/aerobic and dance classes, racquetball courts, lighted tennis courts, a 25-meter swimming pool, complete free weight and cardiovascular equipment areas, in addition to new accessibility for registration of Parks and Recreation programs.

Danville-Boyle County's Regional Park, named MILLENNIUM PARK IN May of 1999, consists of approximately 126 acres and is located off US Route 150 (Perryville Road).  The Park has been divided into active and passive recreation areas with restrooms located in the main playground, and softball, baseball, and football complexes.  Millennium Park's exterior trail system length is 2.17 miles, and its interior loop trail is 1.14 miles.  Planning for the Park was overseen by a committee containing representatives from the Danville and Boyle County community, appointed by the City and County governments.  What would be in the Park was decided after this committee gathered comments at public meetings, developed several options, and then refined the choices after further public hearings.  Millennium Park was dedicated on July 14, 1999.
