Parks and Public Spaces

The Parks and Public Spaces Department delivers a myriad of services to our residents and visitors that are primarily delineated in four areas; Public Works, Facilities, Recreation and Greenspace Management. While each area is specifically focused, they all operate under the same encompassing philosophy of working as a team while striving for continuous enhancement in all service delivery areas utilizing customer relations, strategic management, organizational development, and operational management principles.

Our mission:

To manifest our commitment in providing our residents and visitors with public spaces focused on aesthetics, and fulfilling recreational opportunities while delivering active and proficient public works services to maintain the Village infrastructure.
