There are many components needed to put on a great community event. Some of these may include:
Services for Recreation Providers and Event Organizers
The information and resources on this page will assist anyone who offers recreation programs or hosts events for the public.
We will continue to be adding to this page. Be sure to check back for updates!
Three times a year, Community Recreation Networks gather together several Recreation Program providers to share program details and explore opportunities to develop and deliver programs to meet the needs of a community.
If your group or organization is involved in recreation programming, join a Community Recreation Network in your area! Together recreation can flourish in our communities.
Contact your Community Recreation Coordinator for more information or to be added to the invite list.
