Mount Vernon District Parks & Trails

They provide environmental, aesthetic and recreation benefits to improve the livability and walk-ability of our communities. Parks preserve local ecosystems for plants and animals, while providing gathering and recreational space for all. Many of our parks have extensive trail systems running through them and connecting them.
