Parks & Recreation

The Parks and Recreation Department's goal is to provide the community with a diversified program to meet the recreational, educational, and leisure needs of the citizens. A blend of pleasing landscapes, open spaces, parks, and recreation facilities for both passive and active interests are available.

Citizens can look forward to annual special events such as the Derrick Days Festival Street Games in the spring, a fantastic summer program full of activities for children, the opening of the City's pools and spray parks, a downtown trick-or-treat in the fall and a host of Christmas time events.
