Press Release
The Parklands


Two Metro Parks and nine other city properties will become incorporated into The Parklands of Floyds Fork, the nearly 4,000-acre new parks system being created and managed by 21st Century Parks. Through a management agreement with Metro Parks, the operations and maintenance of these properties will transition to 21st Century Parks on January 1. Park officials also are beginning the process of changing the names of the two existing parks and the below properties. The move will streamline the operations and programming of the overall acreage that otherwise would have been managed by two different entities.
