Parks & Leisure Services

Martinez 2019Our Pledge

To serve the City of Rockport residents and visitors by providing the highest standard of Parks & Leisure Services facilities and programs, efficiently, professionally and safely.

What We Do

We maintain all city parks, the Rockport-Fulton Community Pool, athletic courts and fields, hike and bike trails, playgrounds, picnic sites, restrooms, rental facilities, a 2.6 acre freshwater pond and various city-owned sites, and we provide services to the Downtown Heritage and Cultural Arts District. We also sponsor several run/walks throughout the year.

This department manages and operates the Rockport-Fulton Community Pool, in addition to administering park concessions and exclusive-use agreements.

Our department presents, and assists in presenting, a variety of community-focused programs and events, while also serving as city liaison to the Keep Aransas County Beautiful Committee and Aransas Pathways.
