Community and Partnerships
Listening to residents and working with Prince George's County's increasingly diverse communities is important to M-NCPPC. We know that communities know best what communities need and that having a conversation with everyone at the table is important. We want to keep everyone informed about park projects and recreation programs and services for all ages. To do this, the Department of Parks and Recreation communicates on a regular basis with thousands of county residents, civic and homeowners association leaders, recreation councils, advisory boards, professional associations, sports groups, arts proponents, history buffs, business owners, and elected officials--as well as individuals and families. We take pride in knowing the people who live and work near our parks and facilities, and we want you to join the conversation.
We have regional managers who know their communities and work with staff to reflect local wishes in community center programming. We have park planners who work at the local level to make sure a community's needs are being met with new or renovated parks and facilities. We also have community relations staff in our Public Affairs and Marketing Division.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have a question or a good idea, or want to get more involved in your community.
