The Parks and Recreation Department is investing in our community to provide additional opportunities for living, learning and leading a full and productive life. Parks and recreation benefit individuals and neighborhoods and has a positive impact on economic growth and environmental preservation.

In keeping with the department’s equity program, these projects are organized below by park district and census tract to ensure accurate investment tracking throughout all parts of our city, especially in those areas that have historically been underserved.
