Parks & Recreation

The Parks department includes parks maintenance, special events, and recreation programs. There is an established Parks and Recreation Committee to advise and make recommendations to the City Council regarding various park and recreation functions. Community volunteers can assist with the maintenance and planting at City parks through the Adopt-a-Park program. The City maintains 12 developed parks that total 5.85 acres for recreational use. Vista Park is the largest at 2.63 acres while the others are significantly smaller. City events play a large role in activities for the residents and visitors which include the Fourth of July Events, Festival of Lights, and Movies in the Park. City sponsored events include the Copper Classic Car Show, Brewery Gulch Daze, Bisbee Blues Festival, Boys and Girls Club Halloween Bash, and Bisbee Bloomers Garden Tour, among other events.
