We Are Accredited

Did you know that the DC Department of Parks and Recreation is an accredited agency?

The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) accredits park and recreation agencies for excellence in operation and service.

Accreditation is based on an agency’s compliance with the 151 standards for national accreditation. To achieve it, an agency must comply with 100% of fundamental standards and 90% of the non-fundamental standards set forth by the commission.

DPR is proud of our accredited status. And because we are charged with providing high quality services and experiences, we look to CAPRA as a credible and efficient means of measuring our abilitiy to serve the District while providing assurance to the public that the our agency meets national standards of best practice.
