About Us

Our Mission


Making tomorrow better by providing quality recreation programs and leisure opportunities for all generations.

The Tonganoxie Recreation Commission currently meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 5:30PM. Meetings will now be held at USD 464 Administrative Offices (300 US 24/40 NW DOORS) unless otherwise noted. 

The Tonganoxie Recreation Commission (TRC) was founded in 1967 by a group of dedicated citizens. Thanks to them, Tonganoxie now has services that are progressive for a town of this size. Present staff includes: Director, Brad Eccles; Sports Director, Zach Nachbar, Maintenance Coordinator Doug Tate and Phil Jeannin and  Russ Kimberlin in maintenance. The Commission is presently expanding our traditional and non-traditional programming to accommodate our rapidly growing community. A five member administrative board volunteers their time to guide our progress and monitor growth.

The Commission exists to increase your leisure opportunities. We understand that the benefits reaped through recreation are endless. Participating in community recreation is not only fun, but also healthy and educational.

We encourage all ages and abilities to participate in some kind of recreational activity. It is our goal to facilitate programs, classes and events for every demographic within U.S.D. 464. We aim to get you moving, interacting, learning and playing. Take some leisure time and get involved with your Tonganoxie Recreation Commission.
