What We Do

The rapid growth in this community has fueled a tremendous demand for neighborhood and regional parks, trails, and the landscaping of facilities and rights-of-way. The City Council has mandated that a neighborhood park be located within a half-mile of every resident.


The Park Planning Division provides long-range planning and implementation of new parks, regional trails, other open-space recreational facilities, and major upgrades to existing parks and trails. Park Planning updates the City's Parks and Trails Master Plan and prepares long-term capital budgets. Since its creation in 2004, the Park Planning Division has since designed and built multiple parks, trails, and sports complexes.

The city has started to update its Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The project will include substantial public involvement, and the city wants to hear from you! Learn more
