The Parker Recreation Department was established in 1992 and the Recreation Center opened in 1994. Since then, we have been busy keeping up with the expectations of our rapidly growing community. Despite its brief history, the Parker Parks and Recreation Department has been named as a finalist for the National Recreation and Park Association's (NRPA) top award five times. In both 2000 and 2011, the Parks and Recreation Department was selected as the Gold Award winner as the nation's top department for its population size. The Gold Medal award is given to departments displaying the highest degree of excellence in parks and recreation administration. The Town of Parker's Recreation Department offers something for everyone. Whether you're looking for a place to picnic, an arts and crafts class to take or an athletic league to join, you've come to the right place!
