Parks and greenspaces are essential to healthy, thriving communities.
Under Commissioner Ellis, Precinct One has led the way in developing floodplain land for public recreation, such as the Clear Creek Chain of Parks in the southern part of the county. Commissioner Ellis also leads in developing Hike & Bike Trails. The Parks Department clears land for recreational development; assists with the design and construction of parks and facilities; installs playground equipment; landscapes Hike & Bike Trails; and maintains lake and creek property.
