Administrative Office

The Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for operating and maintaining the city's parks, green spaces, and recreational facilities. Our primary function is to provide a wide variety of recreational opportunities and services to all age groups. The recreation programs serve both residents and non-residents. Our goal is to provide youth and adults of all ages an opportunity to participate in activities, meet new friends, learn teamwork and communication skills, develop new skills, instill respect for nature and our environment, and most of all, have fun when participating in our programs.
