The Recreation and Parks Department is responsible for the management of the city's parks and recreation areas, open space and recreation facilities. A commission develops policies and guidelines for the operation and expansion of the department.

To fulfill its mission, the department is organized around five major areas of responsibility: recreation, parks, education, age-appropriate events, and administration.
- Provide pleasurable experiences as an alternative to the routines of work and responsibility.
- Offer a variety of recreation opportunities to meet the diverse needs of our community.
- Present quality facilities that provide safe, clean and attractive environments critical to the customer's overall experience.
