Parks & Recreation
Beautiful parks to explore
The City of Badger has several beautiful parks throughout town. In order to keep them looking beautiful the Public Works-Maintenance crew encourages residents and visitors to the parks to pitch in and help maintain them to keep them looking beautiful for all visitors and residents of our town.
Durgin Memorial Park
Guy Durgin donated the property to the city that we know as Durgin Memorial Park. Guy was the first Badger VFW Club manager and held that position for 29 years. Guy was a great promoter for Badger, he loved Badger and he loved his country. Guy served in World War II and was wounded while serving our country.
Centennial Park is located at the corner of North Main Street and Lincoln Avenue. Several Badger area residents volunteered their time and talents to construct this park before Badger’s 100th Anniversary celebration in 2006.
