Refreshing our Parks!

You may notice some activity in your local park.  City crews have been hard at work performing tasks such as old fence removal, tree trimming, increasing benches along pathways and much more.  We love hearing your feedback and hope that you are able to enjoy the hard work and dedication our staff has in keeping our parks beautiful for all to enjoy.
