Parks & Recreation Board

The Parks and Recreation Committee’s mission is to retain enough open space for our residents’ use, maintain the beauty and character of the area, and maintain fully functioning park equipment and facilities that will provide a number of recreational activities and events throughout the year. Since the beginning of 2013, the Parks and Recreation Committee has assessed each of our parks’ needs and have compiled a list of upgrades and/or improvements that are scheduled to be implemented.

Park hours are dawn until dusk for all parks. Please check out our great photos from around our parks and read the tabs for more information about each of our wonderful parks!
