"We Create Community through People, Parks and Programs"


Through parks and recreation services, we take an active role in creating community through people; our staff and volunteers who make connections with our residents to improve lives. It is this person-to-person contact that relieves the loneliness of senior citizens, reduces the stress and isolation of working adults and inspires and teaches youth to become productive community members.

Through our parks, open space and facilities, we provide relief from urban development, preserve the environment and provide opportunities for recreation through facilities to meet the needs of the community. Our programs and services produce specific benefits for our residents, as well as, being an important means of connecting with other communities.

Our vision is therefore based on the belief that through high quality recreation programs, facilities and people, an economically vibrant and dynamic community are created and enhanced.

The Parks and Recreation Department prides itself on providing quality enrichment, educational and social programs in the areas of sports, health and wellness, aquatics, youth and senior development and special events for all ages; individuals and families alike.
