Parks and Recreation
City of Langford's Parks and Recreation Department is mandated with overseeing the planning, development and maintenance coordination of parks, trails and recreational facilities integral to the beautification and livability of the community.
The department focuses the City's future park and recreational needs and makes them a reality. Residents of Langford need only to look at their public open spaces to see the creativity and experience of Langford's Parks and Recreation Department.
Much of the department's duties and time involve Capital projects such as Glen Lake Park, upgrading the Langford Lake Aerator and City Centre Park, an International Northwest Parks and Recreation Association award winner for innovative design. The day-to-day operations and maintenance of park infrastructure occupies the rest of the department's resources and is crucial to the longevity and safety of Langford's facilities.
The department coordinates tree planting and evaluation, the erecting of memorial benches, assisting the public and other stakeholders with enquiries and concerns and partnering with other City of Langford departments on land development issues. The department interacts with other agencies, groups and individuals to facilitate their programs and/or events in Langford's fabulous green spaces and venues.
The Parks Manager oversees the department and directs the Parks Technician, Park Planner and the Parks Administrative Personnel in daily operations.
