Our mission is to enrich the lives of all citizens through diverse and innovative recreational programs and services. With a focus on the arts, sports and games, the outdoors, education, and celebrations, we provide both active and passive social opportunities that build community and inspire personal growth. Our parks provide support for passive and active recreation that contributes to enhancing the quality of life. The department encourages citizens to become active, responsible, and engaged members of the community.
Our vision is to be recognized leaders in municipal recreation and our values are in direct alignment with the three pillars of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA): Conservation, Health & Wellness, and Social Equity.
