Parks and Recreation
Welcome to the Community Services Department
The City of Naples Community Services Department is broken down into two different divisions: Parks and Recreation and Facilities Maintenance.

The department strives to be responsive to the public by providing comprehensive and exceptional recreation, parks & parkways, and public stewardship delivered in a cost-effective, efficient, and professional manner.

Parks and Recreation Overview
As an agency dedicated to serving the community as a whole, the City welcomes all people regardless of gender, age, ability or socio-economic status.  We encourage participation in programming to all community members in order to promote health, wellness, social skills, leadership training, discipline, personal welfare and special abilities. The City believes that recreation is essential to any well-rounded individual and can enhance the life of anyone that participates.

The City continually offers opportunities for program participation through a variety of venues including but not limited to dance, art, sports, martial arts, athletic leagues, swimming, theater, extreme sports and camps. Inclusion programs are provided for individuals with “special abilities” including summer camps for pre-school age, elementary age, middle school age and high school age participants. Inclusion programs are routinely provided with wide community support and participation including the funding of additional counselors and adaptive equipment.

Facilities Maintenance Overview 
The City of Naples takes pride in providing and maintaining our premier parks and athletic facilities, outstanding state of the art recreation, and beautifully landscaped public areas, which includes our award winning urban forest. Among these we also maintain the beautiful City beaches, local special events, and athletic and performing arts programs.
