Parks and Recreation Board

The Auburn-Williams Recreation Association was officially formed in March of 1973 with the adoption of the Association's Articles of Organization and Operation. The mission of the Auburn-Williams Park and Recreation Board strives to promote recreation through year round sports and activities for all ages. The purpose of this all volunteer association is to plan and promote recreation and the needed facilities for such within the Township of Williams and the City of Auburn.
