    The Mission:

    The Commission dedicates itself to the community by providing to them:

    • Social Benefits Bringing families and communities together to enjoy recreational and leisure activities
    • Environmental Benefits Protecting and preserving the natural ecosystems within the Park boundaries
    • Educational Benefits Providing individuals, schools, and other learning-focused groups the chance to use the Park and facilities as a natural, outdoor learning environment
    • Historical Benefits Allowing people the opportunity to appreciate the history of the Park and its evolution into a community resource
    • Economic Benefits Developing and managing the Park as a financially self-supporting asset, and encouraging appropriate use so that full financial independence may be achieved
