There are three functional areas of the Parks and Natural Resources Commission: parks, natural resources and recreation. The commission is responsible for advising the City Council and other advisory commissions regarding matters relevant to parks, natural resources, and recreation functions reflecting the attitudes and concerns of the citizens of Woodbury. The commission encourages the conservation and preservation of natural resources in order to achieve a more sustainable community. The commission also encourages the dissemination of information to, and coordination with, individuals and organizations interested in parks, natural resources and recreation functions such as garden clubs, civic organizations, other communities and other groups providing recreation programming in the city such as athletic groups. 

Meetings are generally scheduled at City Hall for the first Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. The meetings are open to the public and are cablecast on Channel 16. Live and archived Parks and Natural Resources Commission meetings can be viewed on the South Washington County Telecommunications Commission website.
