Enjoy Every Season With Us
The Parks and Recreation Department manages over 3,360 acres of city owned property. In addition to 96 areas formally named, there are hundreds of acres held in reserve as undeveloped green space for future park expansion and flood control. We operate and maintain facilities for public use including four municipal golf courses, six swimming pools, splash pads, 24 pavilions, Ushers Ferry Historic Village, Old MacDonald's Farm in Bever Park, Tuma Soccer Complex, Tait Cummins Sports Complex, Noelridge Park Greenhouse, and trails. The parks system receives countless visits each year.

We offer more than 1,500 recreation programs annually. There is something of interest for every age and ability level. Programs are listed in the Play! guide which appears in the November, March and May issues of Our CR magazine. Attendance for aquatic and recreation programs totals more than 300,000 annually.
