CAPRA LogoWe are excited to announce that Deer Park Parks and Recreation has joined an elite group of park and recreation agencies across the country by earning national accreditation through the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) and National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).

CAPRA accreditation is the only national accreditation for park and recreation agencies and is a measure of an agency's overall quality of operation, management and service to the community. This mark of distinction indicates that an agency has met rigorous standards related to the management and administration of: Facilities, Lands, Programs, Resources, Safety, and Services.

As part of the accreditation process, the department demonstrated compliance with 154 recognized standards and documented all policies and procedures. Often the process helps identify efficiencies and heightens areas of accountability, all of which translate into higher quality service and operation to benefit the community.
