Parks Department

The Parks division works to maintain the beauty and usability of all the city parks.  

The Parks Division is responsible for more than 960 acres of municipal parkland including neighborhood, community, special use and natural resource parks. We also maintain over 27 miles of trails, 20 athletic fields, 3 community gardens, 1 recreation center and 19 playgrounds.
During the winter months, the Parks Division teams with workers from the Department of Public Works Streets Division conduct snow and ice removal operations.
This Division is also responsible for support services to festivals, special events, installation, and the maintenance and removal of all holiday decorations.
