The crystal clear lakes, turquoise rivers, winding creeks, towering mountains, forests, and green fertile valleys provide the foundation for the world-class recreational opportunities enjoyed both by Lake County residents and visitors from afar. It is the shared values, unique to our towns and people, the Park Board intends to grow and encourage. Following the Parks and Trails Plan (PDF) as a guide, Lake County aims to build trails connecting communities, ensure citizens have access to the lakes, rivers, and outdoors, find opportunities to build and improve facilities and provide people with a connection to sport and nature.
Lake County owns a number of small parcels with limited occupancy throughout the county. The County Parks Board works to protect these parcels and the neighbors whose lands are adjacent. The Lake County Commissioners and Parks Board understand the fine balance between keeping public lands open to the public while respecting the privacy of neighboring landowners. As the parcels are small, we ask that use size is limited to the amount of parking space provided. We trust people enjoying these parcels also respect local residents and follow the posted park rules and the commercial tobacco-free ordinance. (Fines may apply for misuse of these lands and the parking restrictions.)
Periodically the County completes an inventory and assessment to determine if the parkland and recreation needs of county residents are being met or if additional development is needed.
