Parks, Recreation & Public Facilities
The mission of the Fredericksburg Parks, Recreation, and Public Facilities Department is to enhance the lives of our citizens by providing a diverse package of recreation and park opportunities.

A parallel mission of the department is to provide optimum service to the general public and staff through the city’s Public Facilities Divisions by administering a program of routine custodial maintenance, repair and upkeep, scheduled facility improvements and renovations, and immediate responses to emergencies and disruptions to the work place or service environments.

Departmental Functions
The Fredericksburg Parks, Recreation, and Public Facilities is a municipal recreation department that provides comprehensive year around programming for sports, fitness, nature, specials and nature programs for all ages.  The department operates and maintains 21 outdoor spaces that offer and encourage activities on our walking trails, playgrounds, swimming pool and the Rappahannock River.  We strive to meet the the needs of the population by providing affordable programs for City residents and non-residents alike.
