Jefferson has loads of recreational opportunities.  From the aquatic center to golf, soccer fields, tennis courts, softball diamonds, skate board facility, sledding hill, and ice skating rink.  Most are located within some of our beautiful parks throughout the city.

Jefferson Golf is open and everyone is again enjoying their outings at the course. A new club house will be erected later this year.

The Glacial Drumlin Trail is located north of the city for the biking enthusiast. Go to and read the nice article about the Glacial Drumlin Trail. For the nature enthusiast Schiferl Park with it’s nature trail along a spring fed creek on the city’s southeast side is being restored.  We have a bowling alley with automatic scoring.

The Crawfish and Rock Rivers offer boating, canoeing, and fishing.  We have one of only a few constructed fish ladders in the state by the Rock River Dam.  Rotary Park located by the Rock River offers a quiet serene place to just sit and relax and during the summer enjoy the Concerts in the Park.

For the more adventurous person you might want to try skydiving.  We also have one of only a few outdoor theaters left in the country west on Hy 18.  An indoor 12 screen movie theater just five miles to the north at Johnson Creek.  We have something for everyone!  See the list of chamber members below.
