PARKS & RECREATIONS DEPARTMENT
The Parks & Recreation Department operates and maintains more than 500 acres of developed parkland, more than 50 acres of athletic fields, 3 public/private partnerships and several recreational facilities throughout the city.
Many of Mansfield's park and recreational facilities are funded by a half-cent sales tax approved by the citizens of Mansfield in January 1992. Through the administration of the Mansfield Park Facilities Development Corporation, the City continues to acquire land for future parks, athletic fields, and recreational facilities.
Did you know that Mansfield has 11 parks and 3.5 miles of walking and biking trails? These parks, trails and athletic fields provide hours of fun filled outdoor recreation. Plan your next visit to these parks by finding out the location and what amenities are available.
The Recreation Department promotes, organizes, implements and evaluates a wide variety of leisure programs for youth, teens, adults and senior citizens in the community.
These leisure programs include: athletic leagues, operation of the Mansfield Activities Center, educational and recreational programs, special events, supervised children's programs, trips and tours, and facility reservations.
