The California Park & Recreation Society's mission is to advance the park and recreation profession through education, networking, resources and advocacy. CPRS members are united in their commitment to improving people's lives. This networking happens across disciplines and agency boundaries to achieve together what we cannot do alone. CPRS strives to educate policy makers so that they vote with the premise that parks and recreation is an essential community service.
