The Parks Department is responsible for clearing nearly 150 miles of trails, sidewalks, and parking lots across the city during a snowstorm. There are three categories of routes, prioritized by safety.
- Priority 1 Routes are cleared first; these are trails connecting to schools and recreation centers.
- Priority 2 Routes are cleared second; these are primary use trails and system trails.
- Priority 3 Routes are cleared third; these are secondary use parks, internal and secondary trails.
Visit the Parks and Trails Snow Clearing page for more information, including an interactive map of the three priority routes.
