The Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for the management and maintenance of all lands or buildings owned by the City for park or recreation purposes. They are funded primarily by tax levies and supplemented by program fees.

All recreation programs are handled through this Department. Rental of park facilities may be arranged through this Department also. The Park and Recreation Director is appointed by the Parks and Recreation Board and reports directly to them.
