The Parks & Recreation Board also reviews any proposed acquisition of land, buildings or other properties; construction or capital improvements of facilities; and/or any grant or devise of real estate or personal property for use as a park, playground or other recreational purpose. These reviews and recommendations are presented to City Council for appropriate action.
