We are a community of Parks and Recreation professionals who care about all NC communities' physical, mental, and social health, connectedness, and conservation. Parks and Recreation agencies and professionals play a crucial role in enhancing the quality of life in communities by providing spaces for physical activity, social interaction, and connection with nature. By prioritizing physical, mental, and social health, as well as conservation efforts, this community is contributing to the well-being and sustainability of North Carolina's neighborhoods and natural areas.

NCRPA is celebrating 80 years of advocacy and support of the parks and recreation industry and the people who serve and create exceptional experiences in communities throughout North Carolina. 80 YEARS!
