How do you decide what order parks are built in? 
City of Roseville parks are built in two ways.  City-built parks are built based on residential absorption, or the rate at which the homes are selling. Each home purchase contributes to the neighborhood park fund for that area. Once the fund has collected enough money to build the park, the City begins planning the park.

Another factor that is considered is the ability to maintain the park once it is built.  In some areas within the City, a Community Services District (CFD) for service is in place to finance park maintenance.  Assessments to fund park maintenance begin only after the park is built.  Residential absorption again is a factor because there needs to be sufficient contributions to cover the maintenance obligations.

The second method of building a park is called “turn-key”. In this case, the developer for a particular neighborhood builds the park upfront on behalf of the City before homes are sold.  Because this is a large up-front expense by the developer, not all developers choose this option.
How often are restrooms in the parks cleaned?
Permanent restrooms are cleaned every day.
How often are the parks and facilities inspected?
Parks and playground equipment are inspected daily.
How often is the grass mowed in the parks?
Grass or turf is mowed once a week in the majority of our parks.  It is mowed twice each week at the Maidu Community Center and Mahany Sports Complex.
I’m looking for after-school programs for my kids.

Is alcohol allowed in the parks?
Consumption of alcohol is prohibited in most parks, with the exception of Royer and Woodbridge parks when a permit and a reservation is obtained. The City’s Municipal Code (Section 8.02.280) states that no person shall consume any alcoholic beverage in any park. Violation of this section may be charged as either an infraction or misdemeanor in the discretion of the City Attorney.  “Designated areas” are park areas proposed by the Director, reviewed by the Parks and Recreation Commission, approved by the City Council and posted for alcohol consumption.
