Maricopa County Boards and Commissions > Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission
PARKS AND RECREATION ADVISORY COMMISSION
MISSION: The Commission shall act in an advisory role to the Board of Supervisors on matters
pertaining to parks and recreation. The concept of a recreational program, set forth by the National Recreation Association in a survey made shortly after the Commissions formation, indicated that the County Parks Department could best serve the people of Maricopa County by providing a regional park system, leaving the responsibility for organized neighborhood recreation to the various communities in which the neighborhood might be located.
