The primary goal of the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department's Athletics Staff is to provide a variety of wholesome leisure-time opportunities through competitive and recreational (non-competitive) activities for a diversified clientele. A variety of volunteer youth and adult sports organizations assist in providing low cost, high quality activities on city-maintained athletic facilities. Year-round programming for youth activities focus on participation, sportsmanship, and fun. Adult sports participation varies according to level of ability and experience.
