Williamsfield has 3 village-maintained parks within village limits, but no taxing park district. The parks are maintained by the village maintenance department with help from many local volunteers & students from the local Community Unit School District #210. They help plant flowers in the spring, clean flower beds & re-mulch throughout the year. Additionally, they plant vegetables and flowers in a community garden and string an impressive display of Christmas lights in the winter in our biggest park, Doubet-Benjamin Park.

Festivals and meetings have been held here for years. As the American Legion became a more recognized and prominent organization within Williamsfield, Veterans Park has become a home for memorialized monuments for our servicemen and women.
