Our Mission

The Mississippi Recreation and Park Association provides avenues to build communities, reduce crime, and improve the health of Mississippians. We work closely with state and local recreation professionals to publicize and support statewide and local parks and recreational activities.

We engage students, faculty and elected officials across the state with open communications and improved educational and training opportunities.

MRPA supports our members through leadership development, advocacy and improved training opportunities.

Our members share their knowledge and promote the value of parks and recreation and we embrace networking and social opportunities.
