Mission Statement
"The mission of the Unified Government Parks and Recreation Department is to provide clean, safe facilities and well maintained green spaces for the public to enjoy. To make available recreation programming for youth, adults, seniors and our special needs population. To encourage partnerships and collaboration with other entities that will enable us to provide additional programming not otherwise available."


Parkwood Pool is closed for the 2021 year.


The Parks & Recreation Department has incredible spaces and events for the whole family to enjoy. Our Department maintains several lakes that can be used for many outdoor activities.

Community Centers are available for a huge variety of activities from crafts to sport leagues to fitness classes. We maintain the Sunflower Hills Golf Course; one of the finest public courses in the metropolitan area. Many Neighborhood Parks and athletic complexes round out our extensive park system.
