The City of Paris’ park system is carefully maintained through the efforts of the Paris Parks Department. The Department’s maintenance operations provide a great park system that invites visitors to relax and enjoy the open spaces.

The Parks Department oversees a comprehensive citywide program ranging from lawn mowing to snow removal. The main focus of the department is the timely upkeep of the park sites and facilities under the Department’s care and custody. In addition to the basic tasks of park maintenance, trash removal, field lining and grass cutting, the department is also responsible for the city’s treescape, the department’s horticulture programs, building and equipment repairs, and many other area maintained as part of the city’s beautification program.
