About the Organization

The Wood County Recreation Commission was developed on September 27, 1945 by members of the Wood County Commission, City of Parkersburg, City of Vienna and the Wood County Board of Education.  In 1985 Vienna withdrew from WCRC and developed Vienna Recreation.  The mission of WCRC is to provide quality affordable recreation opportunities for residents of Wood and surrounding counties.  We offer programming for people from all walks of life, but our central focus is very much found in making a significant impact on our youth.  Our goal is to expose our youth to low-cost activities that could transform into lifelong hobbies.  Scholarships are offered with certain programs to provide financial assistance to participants who may qualify.
