Cambridge Parks, Trails and Recreation Commission
The Cambridge City Council has approved the Parks Commission to apply for a Legacy Grant for the updating of City Park. Here is a Draft Master Plan »
There are many people working together to enrich the quality of life for the citizens of Cambridge through parks and recreational opportunities. Among them are the Parks and Recreation Commission.
Building upon the momentum of the parks plan fashioned in 2002, the city of Cambridge created a Parks and Recreation Commission in 2006. The purpose of the commission is to meet the recreational needs of the community through parks, trails and other amenities. The commission meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month, and all its recommendations are then reviewed by the Cambridge City Council.
Commission meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month, beginning at 7:00 pm unless otherwise noted.

"I have always felt that great parks make great communities. My desire is to make our park system even better and to also make our community an even better place. Thank you for the opportunity to serve on your behalf!"
— Mark Ziebarth
"(Several) years ago my husband and I decided to make our home in Cambridge. Since that time we have grown attached to our community. We feel it is important to participate and give back. We have also started our own family and have found we have a love for the local parks and other recreation opportunities in Cambridge. When I saw there was an opening on the Parks Committee, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to serve the community we love while also being involved to assist in an area with which my family has direct involvement. I look forward to helping maintain and improve the local park and recreation opportunities so they fit the need of our entire community."

"I think of our parks as something special that has been enjoyed by people in our past, they are enjoyed by people in the present and will be enjoyed by people in the future. What a wonderful way to tie our community together!!."
~ Lisa Iverson (Council Member Liaison)
The park system is a reflection of our community as a whole and should continue to grow and adapt as the community does. My desire is to help assure that our parks continue to provide a variety of recreational opportunities for all families and individuals to enjoy, helping to make Cambridge a great place to live and play.
