Parks in the city of Markham, Ontario are maintained by the Parks and Forestry Department under the Community & Fire Services Commission.

Some parks (Milne Dame) require fees, but most are free.

Markham's park system emerged in the latter part of the 20th century (earliest parks emerged during the 1960s and 1970s in Thornhill) as it emerged into a suburban community as most of the parks are located in new residential developments.
