The City's special charter gives it ownership of all public parks and recreation facilities within the City and an obligation to regulate and improve those assets. The Park and Recreation Board serves as an advisory body in regard to the development and operation of recreation programs, playgrounds, the Recreation Center, the Deer Path Golf Course, the beach and all other City-owned park and recreational facilities. The Board also acts as a liaison between the residents and the City Council on all park and recreation matters.
The Board meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. and alternates between meeting at City Hall or Municipal Services as noted on the agenda.
Park and Recreation Board meetings are broadcast live and rebroadcast on channel 17. To see the channel 17 schedule for rebroadcast click here. A DVD copy of the meeting is available in the Reference Section at Lake Forest Library.
