Mission Statement

The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department 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.
