The City of Crete has 10 beautiful parks and a public pool maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department, with two additional parks in development (2020). Two appointed citizen boards meet on park and recreation activities: Park Board & Tree Board.
Parks and Recreation also organizes a year-round schedule of youth and adult programs, including: youth basketball, youth and micro soccer, swim team and swimming lessons, t-ball and micro t-ball, youth volleyball and flag football, intro to martial arts, and coed softball. The department utilizes the website RecDesk (link below) for all of its program information to register and pay for programs, check upcoming events and schedules, obtain forms and documents, reserve a field or facility and so much more. Getting started is easy, just create an account to gain access to everything offered by the City of Crete Parks & Recreation Department.
There are numerous recreational activities and facilities available to community residents through additional resources in Crete, including Doane University and Crete Public Schools. Four state recreational areas are within 20 miles of the city. See more about local recreation opportunities in the Living in Crete section of this site.
