Parks Maintenance

The need to provide areas for both active and passive recreation was never more apparent than in today’s fast-paced world. In recognition of this, Miami Township developed a Parks Department responsible for maintaining approximately 140 acres of land dedicated to the recreational needs of our residents. It is the goal of the Parks Department to provide residents and visitors with safe, clean, well maintained parks for outdoor recreation.

In 2010, Miami Township began bidding turf mowing and landscape maintenance services out to local contractors for maintenance of parks and Township owned properties. Below is a list of tasks not included in the annual mowing contract. The tasks are completed by the Parks Supervisor and Road Department staff members.
