Parks & Grounds Division

About the Division

The Parks and Grounds Division works to maintain all municipal grounds and parks and recreational facilities in a clean, safe, and aesthetically pleasing manner.

The beauty of our City is enhanced by the planting of street trees and preserving the health of our existing urban forest while preventing losses to human life and/or property through proper maintenance.
