Park Classes

Class One Regional Parks provide a variety of recreational opportunities and an array of amenities to large populations. Features may include open lawn areas, athletic fields, group picnic facilities, recreation centers, swimming pools, and expansive children's playgrounds. These Parks may hosts tournaments and festivals.

Class Two Regional Parks are generally smaller and have fewer amenities but are larger than Neighborhood Parks. Class Two Regional Parks have rented amenities such as pavilions and areas such as pools and multipurpose fields for organized activities. These Parks are used by more than one jurisdiction, owned and operated by both the County and the cities.

Neighborhood Parks are smaller in size and serve a smaller area. These Parks are generally highly developed sites with limited amenities such as picnic tables, small pavilions, basketball courts, open lawn areas, and children's playgrounds.

Regional Trails are interconnected non-motorized trails for pedestrians, bicyclists, and equestrians that span the county from north to south, east to west. These trails are used for recreation and as an alternative for commuting.

Regional Open Spaces are usually large tracts of land, predominately open and undeveloped. These spaces are used for non-motorized, passive, and low-impact activities, such as trail use and picnicking. It can also include agricultural land. These spaces provide secondary benefits as well, such as watershed protection and preserving wetlands, wildlife and native plant habitats, and natural landscapes.
