To serve Brainerd residents and visitors by offering high-quality, affordable recreational opportunities, and a clean, well-maintained park system.


Offer residents and visitors a first-class parks and recreation system. Our parks will be areas of land that are designed, maintained and strategically located to meet active and passive recreational needs of residents and visitors. 


  • Update existing parks so that they are clean, functional, and an asset to the city and surrounding areas. 
  • Develop parks and trails to meet the needs of new and expanding programs and accommodate future growth. 
  • Expand recreational activities to accommodate the interests of broad range of people.
