Parks & Recreation


Our mission is to work in partnership with our residents, organizations and other municipalities, to develop a healthy and active community by ensuring access to recreation, parks, community development programs and services.

Tell us how we are doing... complete a client satisfaction survey at any time to let us know about your experience with our staff, programs and facilities. 

Due to high call volumes we may not be able to get to all calls as fast as we used to.  During expected registrations and busier times, we increase staffing to help allievate long wait times.  Your patience is appreciated as we navigate through these challenges.
