Parks & Green Spaces

Our beautiful city has many green spaces and parks for the public to enjoy and utilize for a variety of recreational uses throughout the year. These spaces do not have a designated shelter that can be reserved, but nonetheless, they can be used and enjoyed for a leisurely walk with nature, picnics, walking the dog, and even providing great photography backdrops.  The possibilities are endless and our department strives to make each park and green space an experience to remember for our community.

Park Shelters
