Within the City of Inverness, there are over 300 acres of park facilities in operation
, offering activities for all ages. While the larger facilities house most of the amenities, there are small neighborhood parks sprinkled throughout the city limits perfect for picnics or a short outside getaway.
Parking and general admission to City Parks is free. In fact, use of many of the facilities within the parks are free
. For large parties, weddings or special events, citizens can reserve park facilities
; otherwise, use is on a "first come/first serve" basis.
Each park has it's own feel and flavor; however, there is one thing in common with all
city parks. No alcoholic beverages are allowed

. While we all know our dogs, and that "little Fido wouldn't hurt a flea", for the safety and enjoyment of all patrons, we ask that pets be limited to enjoying the 3 1/2 mile perimeter trail at Whispering Pines Park. Make sure your pet is on a short leash and please come prepared to pick up Fido's droppings.
