Portage Park District Keeps On Growing
FOR FUN … FOR HEALTH … FOR LIFE!

Executive Director of the district for the past 20 years, Christine Craycroft has a lot to say about the beauty of Portage County, “Portage County has tremendous natural resources – clean water, beautiful forests, wetlands and wildlife habitat – it can be easy to take it for granted. But as this region continues to develop, we need to balance it with conservation to protect our vital natural heritage, while we still have the opportunity. Thankfully, the public showed its support for parks and trails voting to pass our first ever levy in 2014 that finally gives us a stable funding base – it’s made all the difference in the world for our future.”
