The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is committed to building strong communities and a vibrant economy by providing safe and exceptional parks, facilities, and programs through effective leadership, collaboration and innovative thinking. DPR strives to deliver quality customer service through the development, operation, and maintenance of the City's public parks, recreation centers, and facilities to create an environment that is deemed safe, affordable, and enriching for residents and visitors.

DPR has earned the distinction of being accredited by the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA). This national accreditation by the NRPA is the highest honor that can be bestowed on a parks system and sets us apart from thousands of other parks systems throughout the nation.
