Tasked with maintaining our city's diverse parks, medians and jogging trails, our department is passionate about going green. We're committed to enhancing our community's quality of life with inviting outdoor spaces and stunning vistas across Addison. Tulips are spread throughout Addison each spring as our dedicated Parks crews hand-plant fall bulbs that appear like an artist’s palette of spring colors! The Parks Department provides landscaping and public services to make the great outdoors even greater. From local projects to commercial properties, our team splashes the city with color, and we're dedicated to making you feel right at home in Addison's backyard!
