The mission of the Parks Department is to provide well-maintained, enjoyable park grounds and facilities to enhance the quality of life for City residents and visitors; to preserve and protect open spaces; to provide opportunities for active and passive recreation; and to maintain the landscapes, structures, streams, and woodlands that exist within these areas. In addition, it is our goal to monitor and replace playgrounds that are deteriorated and/or fail to meet ADA standards in order to provide a safe and aesthetically pleasing recreational environment.
