Welcome to the Department of Youth, Parks, & Community Enrichment, formerly known as Parks and Recreation. To best serve the citizens and youth of our community, the Department has undergone a reorganization and renaming to reflect the Council-adopted focus and prioritization on supporting the City’s youth. The renaming and reorganization will further align the City’s youth programs under a unified vision, mission, set of values, framework, and goals dedicated to helping young people succeed.


Together we empower our youth, strengthen neighborhoods, and provide life-enriching programs for a beautiful, livable community.


Our beautiful parks and enriching programs create a thriving community with healthy, strong, and cohesive neighborhoods.
