The Parks and Recreation Department strives to serve the Pocatello community with quality recreation programs, well maintained parks, trails, and beautiful open spaces. Our aim is to help provide opportunities, activities and the facilities to bring pleasure to people's lives. Our parks serve as a source of great community pride, and we are firm believers in the benefits recreation brings to both the years in one's life and the life in those years. Often people don't realize what a vital role Parks and Recreation plays in the quality of their lives. Our aim is to help the community make the connection between vital and happy lifestyles and parks and recreation.
