the support for a variety of leisure time activities and facilities for
residents of all ages. We aim to provide additional educational
opportunities to the community to promote a healthy and active lifestyle
through recreational programming. The Forestry Division maintains the
health of all publicly owned trees along city streets and parklands, and
educates the public regarding tree pests, diseases, and new urban
