Public open spaces within Aurora range from landscaped public parks to environmentally sensitive river valleys meandering throughout the municipality and the Oak Ridges Moraine.
The Parks division of the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services department currently manages over 62 parks encompassing more than 800 acres. Connecting many of the parks is a trail system of approximately 57 kilometers designed to accommodate joggers, hikers and skiers. It is anticipated that some of these trails will be connected with the developing regional trail system and others will be included as part of the emerging community bicycle path network.
In addition to planning, developing and maintaining Aurora's parkland, the Parks division is also responsible for the outdoor maintenance of municipal buildings and facilities as well as municipal forestry.
