General Information

The Parks Department has responsibility for City Grounds and Facilities Department and Rose Hill Cemetery.


Our number one priority is the safety of our park visitors. If you visit any of our parks and observe a hazard, please contact Parks and Recreation immediately at 970-665-6480.
