City Parks:

Royal is proud of its Village Park located at 202 Ryan St., one block south of Highway 20. Picnics in Village Park, which has new restroom facilities, can be enjoyed at one of two shelters. Both shelters have picnic tables available while one shelter also has electrical outlets. Children can enjoy the new playground equipment!

Fire Department:

Royal has a 16-member Volunteer Fire Department. Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at the department meeting room located at 405 Johnson St. The fire department works closely with the Orchard Rural Fire Board and the Orchard and Brunswick Volunteer Fire Departments to keep members trained and ready for an emergency.

In 2011, money was raised and a grant was used to update some equipment. Also, the Royal Fire Department and Orchard Rural Fire Board purchased a new Dodge 4x4 grass rig.
