A parks department is responsible for maintaining and managing local, state or regional parks. Public parks and recreational lands all need oversight to ensure that the properties are maintained and kept safe for citizens to use. A parks department is responsible for all activities and operations at park properties.
There are parks departments at the local, state, and federal levels. This department also oversees certain sporting events in addition to its maintenance responsibilities. In some jurisdictions, the department is responsible for operating programs such as fitness and exercise classes, sports leagues, nature walks, bicycle trails, environmental programs, and research programs. A parks department may also be responsible for some youth training and education programs.
