Parks and Recreation

Our Mission2016 january june Park Program Guide

Our mission is to be the stewards of the open space, greenways, trails and park land in Greenfield and to serve its citizens by:

  • Providing responsive and diverse programs and recreational opportunities for all citizens, regardless of race, gender, age, religion or disability.
  • Being adaptable and flexible in its land use, facility use and programming.
  • Creating innovative partnerships with organizations with common value.


Do we need parks? Studies say we not only need them but they play an important role in our communities.

Parks are vitally important to establishing and maintaining the quality of life in a community, ensuring the health of families and youth, and contributing to the economic and environmental well-being of a community and a region.

There are no communities that pride themselves on their quality of life, promote themselves as a desirable location for businesses to relocate, or maintain that they are environmental stewards of their natural resources, without such communities having a robust, active system of parks and recreation programs for public use and enjoyment. Read what the National Recreation and Parks Association has to say about the benefits of a vibrant and active Parks program.

Help keep our parks clean!

Please clean up any litter from your sporting event, gathering or activity. Leaving food and other litter attracts animals and could be washed into the stormwater system or the creek.

If you walk or bring your pet to a park, please use the provided pet waste bags and trash cans to clean up after your pet.Pet wastes contain bacteria that can cause diseases. Plus, no one likes to step in pet waste!

A park is public space, so please cooperate with other park users to take care of something that belongs to all of us.

Thank You!
