Abstract In 1909 the Denton Chamber of Commerce established a park committee to investigate value added by city parks in preparation of establishing the first city park for Denton. In 1912 the first official Park Board was established and subsequently written into the City Charter. The first modern City Charter for Denton was written in 1959 in which Section 5.05 created the Parks and Recreation Department.
