Parks & Public Space

The Grounds Section is responsible for many maintenance and repair services including the following:

Parks, Medians & Public Space

Parks add to the beauty of our city and represent a place where residents and visitors can go to relax, reflect and recreate. The Public Works Services Division provides maintenance for the City's park system, athletic fields, and walking trails. Maintenance levels vary according to season and location but include:

  • Restroom cleaning
  • Irrigation operation and repair
  • Mowing
  • Playground inspection and repair
  • Weed control
  • Fertilization
  • Shrub maintenance

In addition to City parks, Public Works Services staff oversees the maintenance of public landscaping within the City.

The Public Works Department recognizes that the City's parks are utilized for a variety of recreational activities. While the Public Works Services Division is responsible for the maintenance of public parks, we do not facilitate rentals or otherwise coordinate usage of parks facilities. Information regarding park and facility rentals can be found in the Community Services section.

Maintenance Districts

The Public Works Services Division section is responsible for the maintenance and repair of public landscaping. The maintenance includes medians and special district-funded street frontages along arterial roadways, neighborhood gateways, and other public spaces. Routine landscape maintenance operations such as mowing, trimming, weeding and irrigation are provided by contracted landscape maintenance companies as well as City staff.
