Ashland Parks and Recreation

“Fun, it’s in our Nature!”

Vision, and Values statements to better represent who we are and what we do in words that resonate with our staff, commissioners and citizens.

We started from the ground up, working collaboratively to outline our core values first. We asked our team: “What principles guide your work? What gets us up in the morning?” This process uncovered a lot of passion for our community, our co-workers and our environment. Why do we love our work so much? Let us tell you!

Community | Education | Pride in Work | Stewardship

These four values are the pillars of APRC. They are our commitment to YOU, and to future generations. These values were always there, inside every one of our co-workers. Now, we can hold them up for all to see!

Stay tuned, and look to the horizon, as we tackle our Vision Statement next.
