Parks and Bike Path

The City’s park system is made up of five parks and a bike path, all designed to meet the various recreation needs of community residents. The community takes great pride in its parks and play areas, and appreciates the help of all who use them in keeping them safe and clean. For more information about parks and play areas, contact City Hall at 234-2701.
