The Parks and Recreation Department provides parks, special facilities, and recreational programs that promote attitudes, increase interests, knowledge and skills that improve the individual, the community, and the environment. The department is responsible for maintaining the City's 11 parks, implementing recreation programs, and operating the Shoreview Community Center.

The city currently has 15 developed parks, with over 1400 acres of park and open space, which is 18% of the City land area. There are 11 city parks and 4 county parks. In addition, the department also maintains 55 miles of city and regional trails that connect most neighborhoods to parks, schools and commercial areas.

From hiking to biking and picnicking, Shoreview has the perfect setting to provide year-round enjoyment for residents. The rich and wide-ranging natural environments provide serene backdrops for family picnics, biking, touring, walking, hiking and cross-country skiing.

Shoreview was the first city in Minnesota to be recognized as a "Bicycle-Friendly Community" by the League of American Bicyclists for its comprehensive 55-mile trail and sidewalk system.
