The City's Parks & Recreation Department is responsible for maintaining and developing eight major parks to serve a wide variety of recreational and leisure needs for residents both today and in the future. The Department is committed to providing and maintaining the parklands in a quality cost-effective manner.
Our vision is to create community through People, Parks, Programs and Preservation.
Our mission is to provide lifelong recreation and leisure opportunities for our residents, neighbors and guests through high quality programs in well-managed parks and recreation facilities.
Pool passes can be purchased in-person at the Holmes Aquatic Center or online using an existing RecTrac account.
Here is a short video tutorial on how to make a park reservation:

The Holmes Aquatic Center is located within Curtis Park. The complex is open from late May through Labor Day. The facility is available for University Park residents and those who reside in the Highland Park Independent School District only. Jump into summer with our Aquatic Programs! We offer swim lessons for children ages 3 and older. We also have a swim team for swimmers ages 5 to 17.
The City offers five double tennis courts for recreational tennis play (Burleson, Caruth, Curtis, Germany, Smith). All courts have fiberglass practice backboards and are lighted for evening play. Court reservations can be made on RecTrac.
The City offers six pickleball courts at Williams Park for recreational play. The pickleball courts are lighted for evening play. Court reservations can be made on RecTrac.
Due to nearby field play, parking near Williams Park can sometimes be difficult to find. Pickleball partners may want to share a ride.
The parks are available for events such as birthday parties and picnics. Park reservations require a security deposit and a land use fee. For events over 200 guests, a formal request must be submitted in writing and approved by the City Council.
