Parks & Recreation
Parks, recreation facilities, trails, and open spaces improve our communities’ physical and psychological health by strengthening the environmental, social, and economic aspects of our neighborhoods. The availability of well-planned and well-designed parks and recreation facilities is critical to maintaining and improving quality of life.
