Our goal is to enhance our citizens' lives and strengthen community ties through our recreational programs and our great city parks.


We invite you and your family to participate in our many programs and events offered at our three recreation centers.  The staff is continually adding new and exciting programs and events to the department calendar.  We encourage you to take advantage of the many beautiful city parks, shelters, tennis courts, walking trails, outdoor pool and athletic fields. 


Are you looking for a place to hold a birthday party, family reunion, reception, and pool party or softball practice?  For your convenience, we offer rental of the recreation centers, park shelters, and several athletics fields.


The department offers a variety of fitness memberships at the Armory Recreation Center and strives to offer programs for pre-school, youth, adults, families and seniors (55 and older).
