Each City park has its own unique qualities whether you want to take a short walk, throw a frisbee, or enjoy the sounds of a creek or the views of the Lake, there is a park for you. The Public Works Department is responsible for landscape maintenance services to preserve and improve the quality of each City outdoor facility. A broad range of equipment and skilled workers maintain and improve the great variety of trees, shrubs, annuals, grass areas, irrigation systems, pathways, park structures (drinking fountains, tennis courts, etc.), and outdoor play equipment.

Lake Forest Park also has a great volunteer support system helping maintain and cleaning up the parks. The Lake Forest Park Stewardship Foundation, Lake Forest Park Rotary and City Commissions are great contributors in volunteering in City Parks. 

Reminder, dogs must remain on-leash at all parks.
