SLPR’s Brief History

Southern Lakes Parks and Recreation was established in November 2000 by a vote of the people from Linden, Fenton and Fenton Township under the Metropolitan District Act, PA 312 1929. SLPR is overseen by its Board of Commissioners.

A perpetual .4 mil operating millage was approved (rolled backed by Headlee Amendment).


The mission of Southern Lakes Parks and Recreation is to establish, maintain and operate a system of parks, recreation facilities and programs.


SLPR’s vision is to offer parks, recreational facilities, and program opportunities that enhance the education, physical health, personal well-being and social interactions within the community.

Our administrative staff works together to offer a well-rounded list of activities to local residents.
