The Parks & Recreation Committee is committed to maintaining a stunning park system for Prairie Village residents. The Committee recommends policies and guidelines to City Council on issues related to the Prairie Village park system and the Prairie Village Swimming Pool Complex.
This Committee was instrumental in the pool complex renovations which occurred in 2000 and the adoption of the Parks Master Plan in 2009. The Parks & Recreation Committee also prepares an annual park improvement and maintenance program.
The Parks & Recreation Committee meets on the second Wednesday of January, March, May, September, October, and November at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall. At the beginning of every meeting, time is set aside for public comments and questions.
