Our mission: Enhancing Lives, Creating Memories in Clean Supreme Parks! To develop and enhance a healthy, family- oriented environment by creating, promoting, maintaining and implementing recreational and cultural opportunities for youth, teens, adults and seniors in parks and public spaces.

Description:
The Parks and Recreation Dept. develops and implements leisure time activities that promote positive opportunities to enhance the quality of life for youth, teens, adults and seniors. We encourage physical, creative and imaginative participation that will serve and expand the interest and opportunities for persons beyond school, work or home.

The Division of Recreation offers a wide variety of recreation activities to area residents and visitors. Services include the provision of passive parks, picnic pavilions and scenic areas. Active recreation programming includes youth and adult athletics, summer and holiday out of school camps, after school, sailing instruction and a host of other activities for citizens of all ages. Public swimming is offered at the Gaines Park Pool, which is also the site of several special interest aquatic activities such as Under Water hockey and the Piranha Youth Swim Team. Tennis is provided at several staffed and open play sites throughout the City. The Department is involved in many re-occuring and one-time special events each year, as well as events initiated by outside groups and the Community Events Division, which the department provides support staff.

City park facilities and community centers provide meeting space, host a number of arts and crafts, fitness and martial arts training, to name a few classes, taught by contractual instructors. One center primarily hosts senior adult activities, while the remaining centers receive heaviest use by neighborhood/area youth.
