It Starts in Parks!
Message from the
Director
I am pleased with the progress
that Columbia’s Parks and
Recreation has made over past
few months. We’ve opened a new
skate park, nature trail and soon
will begin construction on a new
administration building and
Community Center.

As a department, we are grateful
for the support of our many
stakeholders who see the value of
what we do everyday.

Recreation and park services are
often the catalyst for a growing
sector of our economy. Recreating
together builds strong families,
which is the foundation of a
stronger community.

Leisure opportunities for youth
provide positive lifestyle choices
and alternatives to self-destructive
behavior. When it comes to
health and wellness, recreation is a
great starting point.

Being green is what parks and
recreation has always been about.
Urban forests and parks improve
our air quality and absorption of
rainwater.

We welcome you to visit one or
all of our facilities as often as you
can.


It Starts in Parks!

Senior Assistant City Manager

lessons and a guided nature walk.
