The City of Mason parks emphasize a balance of natural resource protection and passive activity with active use of each of the larger parks.
Each park in Mason is family oriented, providing activities for multiple age groups to the extent possible.
Passive parks preserve natural habitat for birds and wild animals. Walking trails and a few benches are provided for the enjoyment of humans.
Active sports facilities are provided in locations that improve community-wide distribution and allow flexibility as the community grows.

The parks are also supported by the Mason Parks & Recreation Foundation. Its purpose is to enhance the quality of life by encouraging the support of parks, places, and programs.
The foundation is working with the city to build an all-inclusive playground for people of all abilities. Called Common Ground, it will be built on city-owned land on Snider Road. Fundraising efforts are currently underway.
