Parks and Recreation Board

The Quincy Park and Recreation Board establishes the policies and procedures of the Park Department and maintains permitting authority for all municipal parks.

The nine-member board comprises volunteers appointed by the mayor representing each of the city's six ward as well as three city council appointments, one of which must be a member of the School Committee.

The board meets the first Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at the Richard J. Koch Park and Recreation Complex, One Merrymount Parkway.
