Parks Department
Parks Department Mission Statement

To care for and enhance our parks, pathways, open space and cemetery, and improve our quality of life by providing the highest quality public service, maintenance and development.

The Parks Department consists of five divisions:

Golf Course: Kendrick Golf Course is a par 72, 18-hole layout which offers an enjoyable golf experience at an affordable price. Located in Sheridan, WY, KGC is a public golf course which entertains golfers of all skill levels with its links style course and undulating greens. While relaxing on the patio, enjoy the breathtaking views of the Big Horn Mountains which happens to be the backdrop of our back nine.

Cemetery: The staff at the Sheridan Municipal Cemetery are responsible for the care of over 10,000 plots. We strive to honor the memories of those who have passed on, and provide a beautiful space for their descendants to inter and visit their burial sites.

Grounds Maintenance: Our Grounds Maintenance team cares for and maintains all 13 of our City Parks, as well as miles of public pathways. These walking & biking paths are used by citizens and visitors of all ages. The City strives to keep these amenities updated and to continue expansion, giving users access to more areas of Sheridan while enjoying the beautiful outdoor spaces Sheridan has to offer.

Community Forestry: Did you know that Sheridan may be the best place in all of Wyoming to grow trees? Or that thirteen of Wyoming’s champion trees can be found in the Sheridan area? Did you know that Sheridan has one of the top arboretums in the state? Wyoming may be known for its prairies and pastures, but Sheridan should be known for its trees. Trees are a critical resource to the City of Sheridan. Trees provide us shade and clean air, they capture and filter our rainwater and they act as habitat for our local wildlife. Trees are the foundation of our town. They increase our individual health, create places for our community to gather and help provide the quality of life that the City of Sheridan is known for. Acknowledging the importance of our trees, the City of Sheridan has created its own Community Forestry Program. The mission of the program is to ensure the safety and vitality of Sheridan’s community forest, both today and into the future. The Community Forestry Program is tasked with maintaining and promoting the health of nearly 5,000 trees in public spaces such as parks, street spaces and natural areas. It also acts as a useful resource for private tree owners by promoting education focused on local tree species and proper tree maintenance.

Weed and Pest: The City of Sheridan provides services to control the growth of weeds, and the population of mosquitoes, on an as needed basis only. The chemicals used are determined to be safe for humans and animals by the EPA.
