Mansfield City Parks
The Mansfield City parks are the center of many recreational events throughout the city, many of which are sponsored by the City’s Parks and Recreation Department. A source of both civic pride and historic significance, these parks offer a relaxing environment, and an escape from “city life.” All of our parks require daily maintenance, which is actually the primary function of the Parks Department.Park workers are responsible to keep the parks in top form. They do fencing, landscaping, and concrete work. They work with various garden clubs, and also operate a small tree nursery as part of the City’s Tree Replacement program. The Park’s Personnel also accept donations of plants and flowers for planters and flower beds. The City’s parks have been acquired in various ways throughout the years. Some were donated by individuals and businesses. Others were developed from land purchased by the city. Groups have also developed and donated parks to the city. There are 5 pavilions that can be rented throughout the week. To inquire about reserving a park pavilion, please call (419) 522-9801. Reservations must be made in persion at 100 Brinkerhoff Avenue Monday – Thursday 8 am – 2 pm.
