Athletic fields, baseball and softball diamonds, basketball courts, BMX dirt track, frisbee golf courses, gardens, off-leash dog exercize areas, pavilions, picnic areas, playgrounds, and restrooms, splash pads, trails, volleyball courts abound throughout the system.

The Department also operates the Noelridge Park Greenhouse and flower gardens, Old MacDonald's Farm, Tait Cummins Sport Complex and Tuma Soccer Complex.

The full service park season for the availability of restrooms, drinking fountains, pavilion rentals and general day-to-day operating conveniences is May 5 through September 30, 2018. As spring unfolds, water is turned on in the larger parks first and the smaller parks follow. Park hours are 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily.
