The South Suburban Park and Recreation District has achieved accreditation by the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies during a conference of the National Recreation and Park Association, according to a news release.
“Earning this prestigious honor from NRPA validates our commitment to the South Suburban community,” South Suburban Executive Director Rob Hanna said in the news release. “Our staff worked tirelessly fine-tuning our operations to exceed residents' expectations during the year-long accreditation process. I'm proud of their commitment and the end result.”
CAPRA is the only national accreditation of park and recreation agencies and is a measure of an agency's overall quality of operation, management, and service to the community.
The accreditation means South Suburban uses best management practices established by experts in the parks and recreation industry. As a result, the recreation district is continuously reviewing operations, policies, and procedures to innovate and offer the best services for its residents and customers, the release said. CAPRA accreditation demonstrates South Suburban's commitment to providing quality programs, services and customer service.
Of the more than 12,000 park and recreation organizations throughout the United States, 169 are accredited through CAPRA's standards of excellence. South Suburban becomes the ninth agency in Colorado to earn the distinction.
NRPA is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of public parks, recreation and conservation. Its mission is to advance parks, recreation and environmental conservation efforts that enhance the quality of life for all people.
