The Parks Maintenance and Management Division provides effective and enjoyable facilities and parks at over 40 locations for the enhancement of the quality of life for all citizens of Greeley.

On a daily basis, Park Technicians are on site handling maintenance & repair, supervising and installing improvements, acting as public liaisons and coordinating special events. Additionally, we employ a full time Park Planner to continue the development of long and short term strategic plans to compliment the Parks Master Plan as well as the Trails Master Plan.

The department has been actively involved in bringing all park locations online since 2003.
