Parks & Recreation

The parks are managed and maintained by Monroe's Public Works Department. This includes regular activities, such as mowing and facility/equipment maintenance. Programming efforts include contract administration with local leagues, activities such as the Movie in the Park series, and planning and staff support for major events such as Light up the Sky.

The Public Works Department also serves as staff assistance to the City’s Park and Recreation Board. The five members of the Park Board are appointed by City Council for five year terms. The Board is responsible for guiding how the park system’s assets are used and approving programming/activities.

Monroe is a founding organizational member of the Tri-State Trails Org, supporting its mission to connect people and places with a regional trail and bikeway network that enhances vibrancy and equity in our community.
