Where Community Grows: The Unsung Heroes of Southlake Parks

You couldn’t have a beautiful City like Southlake without the breathtaking parks within our green and vibrant city.

Our Parks Crews rise early in the morning to take on the task of keeping our parks in pristine condition. As the sun rises, our park crews are already on site, ready to beat the summer heat. Collectively our teams are responsible for city-wide beautification, contract management, field maintenance, facility utilization agreements, event support, and working with our Athletic Associations.

These oases of greenery provide us with a much-needed respite from our daily lives and contribute to our physical and mental well-being. Behind the scenes, an often-overlooked group of individuals works tirelessly to ensure our parks are meticulously maintained, safe, and inviting for everyone to enjoy.

Our parks crew, through their unwavering dedication and tireless efforts, enhance the quality of life in our communities. They transform ordinary green spaces into extraordinary sanctuaries, creating a haven for all to enjoy. It is time we recognize and celebrate these unsung heroes, expressing our heartfelt gratitude for their hard work, commitment, and invaluable contributions.

In Celebration of Parks and Recreation Month, we want to highlight these hard workers in many ways. On Instagram and Facebook @experiencesouthlake, you can see a beautiful collage of all the Southlake parks. You can also find an exclusive interview with Terry Lee, one of our world-class Parks Supervisors, to learn all the behind-the-scenes details of all the work that goes into our parks.

Happy Park and Recreation Month to those who keep our public parks green, clean, and safe!
