Leisure Services

Services


The Leisure Services Department, through the Park Division and Recreation Division, provides quality services to the entire community with diverse recreational programs for all ages and an integrated, efficient, and safe system of parks, trails, and recreational facilities. 

The department also plans, develops, and maintains the formal public landscaping and natural areas in and around the City, demonstrating an appreciation for the environment.
In an effort to be a more accessible and equitable City department, the Leisure Services Department is open later than other City offices so that hopefully more individuals/families will have the opportunity to be served in-person. Our office hours are Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Administrative staff such as Managers and Program Supervisors may be available via phone as early as 8:00 a.m. 
If you do not currently receive a mailed Leisure Services brochure and would like to be notified when they become available, please click here to sign up.
