Vision Statement

The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation will provide the optimum recreational facilities with quality programs to ensure the standard of excellence for all the citizens of Duluth.

Mission Statement

The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Departments aspires to provide long-term, quality, safe, diverse and enduring programs targeted for various segments of the local community at reasonable costs. Financially, our intent is to generate maximum returns-on-investment where possible, and to meet the varying and increasing demands of a growing community; but not at the expense of excluding services demanded by the majority of our public. We will attempt to provide sufficient, well-maintained facilities and green space with associated recreation activities to achieve minimum standards as defined by the Georgia Parks and Recreation Association.
