The Erie County Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry provides residents opportunities to enjoy recreational pursuits in natural settings on a year round basis and protects regionally important areas of scenic, environmental and cultural heritage significance.

Beginning Wednesday March 8, 2017 the Bark Park at Ellicott Island will be closed for Spring maintenance. Reopening date is TBD. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

We will be accepting golf pass applications at Elma Meadows on 3/24 and 3/25 and at Grover Cleveland on 3/31 and 4/1 from 10 am-2 pm. These are the only dates we will be accepting pass applications at the golf courses.
