City parks serve an important role, especially during drought conditions when residents are asked to let their lawns go. Parks provide places to host parties and weddings, play sports, recreate and relax. Community events such as fundraising runs, concerts in the park, holiday celebrations and festivals are also held in parks.
While the City is committed to maintaining parks, we also have a commitment to reducing water consumption in our facilities. Since June 2015, the City has reduced water use at parks and facilities by 45% and in landscape maintenance districts by 67%.
