Parks & Civic Center
The function of the City of Hereford Parks Department is to provide maintenance, upkeep, and improvements to the 200+ acres of city parks. The Parks Department also maintains the Civic Center and takes care of all heavy maintenance for the Aquatic Center.
The Parks maintained by the department include the Aquatic Park, Dameron, Jaycee, Langley, Mothers, Garden Center, Central, Buena Vista, Veterans, Ironwood, Santa Fe, and all-island parks around town. Some of the daily maintenance includes mowing, irrigation repair, watering, tree care, building, and facility maintenance, snow/ice removal, and the raising and lowering of the Aquatic Dome.
The City of Hereford Parks Department proudly hosts two fishing events each year, one in the spring and the other in the fall.
Each day we strive to make our parks and facilities look great, safe, user-friendly, and most of all FUN!! In the future, we hope to replace all old play equipment with modern equipment and have efficient irrigation systems. Our goal is to use as little water as possible and still maintain a nice Park System. We have xeriscaped many low use areas in our continuing effort to conserve water.

We recently completed an addition to the golf-shop, which can be used as a meeting and relaxation area.
