Mission Statement

City of Concord Parks & Recreation exists to provide recreation services, parks and facilities that enrich the lives of all residents and promote the opportunity for a healthy lifestyle.

A message from our Director

Providing quality programming and services, and a safe, aesthetically pleasing greenway and park system is the commitment we make every day to the families and residents of Concord. We take great pride in providing services that enhance quality of life and we strive to make our community a great place to live. 

I hope you have the opportunity to get outdoors and walk the greenway, visit one of our parks, experience one of our special events, visit one of our community centers, and participate in a recreational class or program.

Concord Parks & Recreation takes great pride in the community support we receive and want you to know that we are continually working to earn your support. We welcome your comments, questions or concerns.
