The Park Board meets monthly for the purpose of making recommendations to the city council relating to the management and maintenance of parks, parkways, lakes, waterways, municipal squares and beautification of municipal grounds.

Each member appointed to the Park Board automatically becomes a member of the Tree Board and Park Board of Trustees.
