Parks & Trails

You can find parks and trails throughout the City.  Check out the playgrounds, tennis courts and athletic fields.  Need to unwind from a busy day?  There are over 55 miles of trails passing through woods and around lakes to enjoy the wonders of nature.  If you are planning an outdoor gathering there are picnic pavilions to reserve with grills and picnic tables.
