Recreational activities here at the City of Lancaster, Texas are a very important aspect of life. Staying active is a benefit for all ages and fitness levels. Eating a well-balanced meal and regular exercise will help in maintaining a healthy weight. For the elderly, regular moderate exercise is important, which improves flexibility, strength, balance, and cardiovascular health. Staying connected mentally and involved in the city-wide events, building long-lasting and leisure relationships is very essential.
Our mission is to advance the quality of life for Lancaster citizens, employees, and visitors through creative recreation program opportunities and quality leisure experiences while enhancing and preserving parks and open spaces for future generations.
With our mission in mind, the department's vision for the future is a thriving parks system that values our natural beauty, celebrates diversity, and engages residents and stakeholders through "shining star" opportunities to live, learn, and play!
