Park Maintenance


Park maintenance is often a public/private partnership. Many groups adopt parks or certain playing fields and help maintain those facilities. Contractors mow parks regularly. Keep Middletown Beautiful and city crews work together to maintain flower beds and planters throughout the city. Many volunteers add labor and expertise in making the green spaces as beautiful as possible.
