Firstly, the creation of Williamson County out of the south half of Franklin County by the Illinois General Assembly was marked. The next day, August 20, they laid out a town of 20 acres. Plus a public square about one-quarter of a mile east of the county’s center, but a point on top of a slight hill of 448 feet above sea level. The site sat in a small open grassland known as Poor Prairie. For a name, they chose Marion to honor American Revolutionary War hero General Francis “Swamp Fox” Marion.

City parks grew as the footprint of the city grew. Today Marion’s Parks and Recreation Department maintains over 600 acres of public ground with a combined total of 41 parks and green spaces. City Square Park is home to the nationally- acclaimed Marion Arts Festival each summer, as well as concerts, farmers’ markets and numerous other family-friendly activities year round.
