The City’s Parks & Recreation Department is dedicated to creating a better community through people, parks, and programs. It is our goal to provide services that positively impact the social, economic, health and environmental quality of our community.

Our vision is dedicated to developing and maintaining beautiful, safe and environmentally friendly open spaces for the public to use and enjoy. We strive to provide comprehensive, quality and safe recreation and parks programs, facilities and services. Our mission is to acquire, develop, operate and maintain a parks and recreation system which enriches the quality of life for its residents and visitors alike, and preserve it for future generations.

The Parks & Recreation Department will continue to advance our services and program offerings but our core values will remain the same. We will continue to strive to build a sense of community, enrich people’s lives and contribute to the total development of families and the City of Haines City.

Please, join us! Come shop and dine in our historic downtown, participate in the many recreation opportunities, enjoy the variety of special events that bring the community together and walk the neighborhoods that we call home. Come visit and stay in Haines City – A great place to live work and play!
