Park Division

The Park Division is responsible for proper grounds maintenance of all Town-owned buildings, including schools, the upper and lower commons, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, and many roadside areas, including 22 traffic islands. This division maintains over 100 acres of parks and recreational land under the Public Works jurisdiction. 

This division is responsible for rubbish removal at all parks, school fields, and downtown areas. This division cleans and grooms the Town’s four synthetic athletic fields and performs setup and cleaning for major festivals that occur in the Town, including Movies by the Lake, Festival Italia, our July Fourth parade and fireworks, and athletic games at Town and school fields. During the winter, this division also takes an active role in snow removal activities and participates in sidewalk plowing events when roadways are clear.
