The City's special charter gives it ownership of all public parks and recreation facilities within the City and an obligation to regulate and improve those assets. The Park and Recreation Board serves as an advisory body in regard to the development and operation of recreation programs, playgrounds, the Recreation Center, the Deer Path Golf Course, the beach and all other City-owned park and recreational facilities. The Board also acts as a liaison between the residents and the City Council on all park and recreation matters.

The Board meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at Municipal Services unless otherwise noted on the agenda.
