The Village of Denmark was incorporated on June 15, 1915. Later that year, the community created a Parks and Recreation program for its early settlers.
The Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan for the Village was originally adopted back on June 6, 1994, and then updated in February 2001 and again on April 5, 2004.
The Village maintains a variety of open space that is not officially parkland. These include the entranceways into the Village. The areas located on Pleasant Avenue and the Triangle Prairie Garden area, located on Green Bay Road. The central business district parking lot also features a small pocket park with a water fountain with fish.
Memorial Park is a community park that consists of 30 acres of land with shelters, concession stands, two baseball diamonds, a wading pool, a playground, basketball court, picnic areas, a nature trail, a sledding hill, a tractor pull area and a creek.
The Veterans War Memorial shelter is available on a "first-come first-served" basis. The yellow enclosed shelter is owned by the Veterans and can be rented by calling 920-677-2217. Please leave a message at this number and someone will get back to you.
The Village and the Denmark War Memorial Veterans have cooperatively worked together for several years in an effort to provide recreational opportunities to the Village and area communities. Recently the Village drafted a Memorandum of Understanding which attempts to outline the various arrangements that have been worked out between the various parties.
