Parks & Recreation


With five parks, numerous trails and a beautiful creek traversing through town, we are sure you will find many opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. We encourage you to follow our website and facebook page for updates and information about programs and events. From summer concerts to seasonal festivals and sporting events, we hope you find time to make memories with your family and friends.

We continue to work toward expanding our programming. We are open to suggestions on what you would like to see from your recreation department. Please contact us…some of the best programs come from your ideas. 

See you in the parks,
