Goshen City residents, through city property taxes, contribute substantially to support facilities and programs offered by the Goshen Parks and Recreation Department.  Non-residents are commonly asked to pay an additional amount so they contribute equally with those City residents.  We appreciate non-resident’s understanding in this situation regarding our fee structure.  A City resident is anyone who lives within the City limits of Goshen.
