Park, Recreation & Tree Board

The newly-merged Park, Recreation & Tree Board works closely with the Public Works, Parks & Recreation Department in several capacities.

This board also works to promote recreational programs, activities, and events for residents of Belleair and of neighboring jurisdictions. Lastly, the Park, Recreation & Tree Board may make any recommendations directly to the Town Commission relative to strategic, short, and long-range plans for the Town of Belleair.
