The Parks Division, is entrusted with the maintenance of the following:

  • Fred Baca Park
  • Kit Carson Park
  • Landscaping around town buildings
  • La Loma Plaza
  • Taos Plaza

The Parks Division also maintains the trash cans at the following locations: Dunn Street parking lot, Our Lady of Guadalupe parking lot, Kit Carson Road and Bent Street. We are also responsible for the care and maintenance of the main public restrooms in the downtown area.

Daily maintenance of the parks includes grass cutting, tree trimming, litter patrol and the monitoring of events. During the winter the division provides snow removal for all Town of Taos facilities and any minor park improvements required. Ultimately the primary function of the Parks Department is to maintain all of the Town of Taos parks and keep them "Clean, Green and Safe".
