The Parks and Recreation Department consists of five full time parks workers, an administrative assistant, a supervisor and a director. The Parks and Recreation Department also hires numerous part-time employees during the summer and winter seasons. The department is divided into two divisions, the Parks Department and the Recreation Department. The responsibility of the Parks Department is to maintain and develop the park system for the City. The Recreation Department has the responsibility of programming activities in the parks, arenas, and coordinates the use of the Crookston schools for both active and passive recreational opportunities. The Recreation Department has programs for pre-school through adults.
