About the Parks Department

Welcome to the City of Washington Parks and Recreation Department web site.  As you navigate through our site, you will see that our parks system has much to offer.  Washington is home to over 550 total park acres, divided amongst 16 parks.  Throughout these 550 acres you will find numerous opportunities for recreation and fun, no matter what your interests may be.  We have something for everyone!

Our Department strives to provide the highest quality leisure experiences for each and every person in our community.  This is based on our mission statement: “To always provide the highest quality system of park facilities and recreation activities as mandated by the community through participatory and financial support.”

Our staff always loves to hear what your thoughts are on what we are doing.  Please feel free to contact any member of our staff with your ideas and comments.  The City of Washington Parks Department looks forward to seeing you, your friends, and family at one of our parks in the near future.
