Mission, Vision
& Values


To enrich community life through healthy leisure pursuits and an appreciation of the natural world.


To provide extraordinary experiences in parks and recreation, consistently exceeding the public’s expectations, while:


Communication: We make earnest efforts to connect regularly and effectively with residents. In addition, within the District, we talk to those impacted by our decisions, we speak openly with one another in a trustworthy environment, and we provide direct feedback to others.

Accountability: We demonstrate responsibility to the District and the community in everything we do. We have congruency between our words and our actions.

Innovation: We create an environment that inspires new ideas, we view the District through a different set of lenses and question why we do things the way we do. In addition, we desire to nimbly change our services in response to continuously changing customer requirements.

Integrity: We deliver on what we promise to do by adhering to the highest ethical standards. This results in trust and respect toward one another.

Teamwork: The District’s greater good guides our actions. We respect others and work cooperatively and collaboratively, express our differences of opinion, and listen to one another.

Inclusion: The District is an ally for inclusion and equitable access, where everyone is afforded the same rights and opportunities that result in a sense of belonging, and the ability to safely express themselves authentically, without judgement.
