The Special Services Department evolved from the Farmington Area Recreation Commission, established in 1948, to the Parks and Recreation Department in 1978 and finally to the Department of Special Services in 1985. The department consists of eight divisions including Administration, Senior Adults, Youth and Families, Recreation, Cultural Arts, Parks & Golf, Activities Center and the Ice Arena.

Our residents enjoy hundreds of cultural and recreational programs for all ages, over 600 acres of public parks, an Ice Arena, swimming pool, Senior Center, gymnasium and superb facilities for meetings and banquets. Make a selection above to learn more.
