The Live Oak Parks Maintenance Division of Public Works is made up of one supervisor, a crew of six equipment operators and maintenance workers, and a private janitorial worker. This team is responsible for the oversight and maintenance of more than 100 acres of park land that includes the Main City Park, Woodcrest Park, city swimming pool, clubhouse and adjacent recreation areas. The work consist of traditional landscape, buildings and grounds maintenance to maintain all park amenities including: four baseball fields, a football field, a skate park, two-18 hole disc golf courses, a municipal swimming pool, over 12 miles of walking trails, and a 30 Acre lake.
