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.
In response to recent drought issues, we have a fulltime staff member that is actively involved in irrigation management. We are working hard to establish an automated irrigation control system that will allow us to water according to plant water requirements (ET-Precipitation Rate) and collect ongoing data. The department has been actively involved in bringing all park locations online since 2003.
Staff members are always available to answer any questions you may have. If you ever encounter an unsafe condition in one of our parks please contact us immediately. Our department provides picnic shelter and park facility rentals. To inquire please contact (970) 350-9400. For facilities at Island Grove contact (970) 350-9392.
