Dear Recreators,
This September, the City of Fort Collins Parks,
Recreation, and Park Planning and Development
Departments proudly joined the list of elite park
and recreation agencies across the country by
earning accreditation through the Commission
for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies
(CAPRA) and the National Recreation and Park
Association (NRPA).
The road to CAPRA wasn't simple or easy. Our
staff worked relentlessly to provide the information and documentation necessary to demonstrate
the excellent work that already taking place throughout our organization. The application and review
process was rigorous and thorough, examining our departments from every angle to determine where
the achievements and opportunities for improvement lie.
As an organization, we are committed to the mission of exceptional service for an exceptional
community. This important accreditation is a visible way to display those values we all intrinsically hold:
high-quality programs and services, well-maintained facilities, best practices and standards for the
management of our parks and facilities, inclusivity, and safety for our community.
We were honored and proud to accept our CAPRA award after years of hard work, valuable staff
contributions and input, and guidance and support from leadership. But for us, the work doesn't stop
there. We are eager to take what we've learned from this journey and move forward, continuing to
serve Fort Collins with world-class parks and recreation programs and services.
We hope to see you out there, Recreators!
Bob Adams, Director of Recreation
Mike Calhoon, Director of Parks
