Parks & Recreation Projects

The Parks & Recreation Department is responsible for overseeing a variety of projects within the Town of Erie. These projects include: open space management; playground design, redevelopment, or replacement; recreation facilities; trail connectivity; and more! 

Many projects coincide with the Parks, Recreation, Open Space, and Trails (PROST) Plan.  The Plan reflects vision and guiding principles of the Erie Comprehensive Plan and balances community needs and interests with current and potential funding sources.
