Our Department of Public Works has three municipal parks in its jurisdiction:
Veteran's Memorial Park was constructed in 1974, and has grown and developed to offer a variety of recreational opportunities to area residents. Department of Public Works forces have constructed six family picnic pavilions at this site, which may be reserved for family reunions, receptions, company picnics, school outings, and other family oriented activities at no charge for City residents. In 1995, a municipal swimming pool was added to the park. A perimeter pathway is marked for those wishing to log their walking and jogging miles. Recently, Public Works personnel constructed two new play areas for a total of three sites for children. The park also offers two softball fields, a combination baseball/soccer field, handball walls and a series of tennis courts. A central concession area has restroom facilities.
There will be no dogs allowed in Veteran's Memorial Park on the Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day. This policy will be strictly enforced and signs are posted at the park.
