§ 501. Parks, playgrounds and recreation centers. 1. The county is
hereby authorized to accept by gift and to acquire by purchase,
condemnation, lease or permit, and to own, construct, operate, maintain
and repair anywhere within the county outside of cities, parks,
playgrounds, athletic fields and recreation centers, together with
necessary buildings, structures, equipment and appurtenances, including,
but without limitation, public baths, swimming pools and auditoriums,
and to make the cost thereof a county charge. The county may contract
with any town or village for the operation by the county or by such town
or village of any park, playground, athletic field or recreation center
located within such town or village, whether owned by the county or by
such town or village, and make the cost thereof a county charge.

2. The board of supervisors shall have power by county act to regulate
the use of and to establish a schedule of charges for the use of such
parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, recreation centers and facilities
therein and may prescribe reasonable penalties for violations of its
rules and regulations. The board of supervisors may authorize the
operation, granting and sale of concessions by the commission or others
in or in connection with any such park, playground, athletic field or
recreation center. All moneys received by the commission shall belong to
the county and shall be paid into the county treasury monthly on or
before the tenth day of the month. The board of supervisors, upon
determination by county act that any playground, athletic field or
recreation center, or part thereof, or facility therein, is no longer
required for public use, may authorize the commission to sell or lease
the same under rules and regulations to be prescribed by local law.
