Our department is nationally accredited through CAPRA (Commission for the Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies).
Our Mission is to enhance the quality of life for all citizens through the development of sustainable facilities, parks, programs, and services that promote a lifestyle of cultural arts, physical activity and wellness for all.
Our Vision is to become an innovative, inclusive provider of recreation services that create community through people, parks, and programs.
