The Excelsior Springs Parks and Recreation Department shall provide parkland and recreational activities for the community.

In the early part of the twentieth century, most cities which were involved with planning for a city-wide park system were much larger than Excelsior Springs. The parks were usually developed with the thought of benefiting the local citizenry.
Excelsior Springs, however, was not a typical community. The development of the parks were integral with the promotion of the mineral water system. The history of Excelsior Springs park system is a reflection of the city's unique history and development.
