Public Works – Park Department

Mission 

The Public Works Department strives to efficiently provide essential services to the community.  They are often a first point of contact for citizens as they are called upon to take care of issues with streets, sidewalks, special events, and more.  They take special pride in working as a team to complete the snow removal process as quickly as possible.

Core Duties of the Public Works Parks Department
There are many beautiful parks located within the City of Alexandria! The three main parks with shelters are City Park, Noonan’s Park, and Fillmore-Dean Melton Park.
  • City Park, is  located at 118 City Park Road, and is the only park that is reservable.  The upper shelter at City Park is a great place for family reunions, church functions, and gatherings of any type.  The lower shelter, known as “The Bandstand Shelter” is a wonderful place to hold a wedding with Lake Agnes as the background.  Either shelter is reservable for $20.00.  Reservations for each year begin on January 1. 
  • City Park is also home of “Art In The Park” which is held the last weekend in July.
  • During the winter months the pond at Noonan’s Park transforms into an ice skating rink complimented with a warming house.
  • Fillmore-Dean Melton Park has a brand new shelter and restrooms, great for family gatherings.  It houses a kid friendly play area, baseball field and a large open area!

Please call City Hall at 320-763-6678 if you would like to reserve a shelter at City Park.

Looking for a place to play tennis?

Discovery Middle School has 8 courts total. 4 of the 8 courts marked for pickleball and tennis.  The other 4 are marked for tennis only.

Alexandria Area High School has 12 tennis courts with no pickleball courts/lines.

The community is able to use them at their leisure, first come, first serve.  The only time they are reserved is when Alexandria Public Schools/Community Education has programming or the tennis association is renting due to tournament, etc.
