Parks and Athletic Fields


Gainesville Parks and Recreation maintains and operates 443 acres of passive or active park land throughout the city. People of all ages and interests enjoy our walking trails, open spaces and lakeside amenities. Our playgrounds are safe places where kids can be kids every day. And thousands of athletes, young and old, play their best on the athletic fields and tennis courts we care for with great pride.
