Parks and open space maintenance service standards

We maintain more than 200 manicured park areas, totaling 840 acres. This includes 650 acres of irrigated turf, 86 flower beds containing 30,000 plants, 400 shrub beds, and 20,000 trees. 

In 2019, a review of parks maintenance standards was completed to determine where adjustments could be made in an effort to achieve the appropriate balance of community service and long-term resource sustainability. The findings of the review helped to shape some adjustments to service levels, which have since been incorporated.
