The Parks Department oversees and maintains more than 176 acres of parks, cemeteries, and rights-of-way. Maintenance includes planting trees and shrubs, mowing and trimming parks and cemeteries, maintaining six restroom complexes, and taking care of more than 172 acres of sprinkler coverage. Even though park maintenance responsibilities vary with the seasons, the job keeps the maintenance personnel busy year 'round.
