2020 Annual Conference

Unfortunately we have had to postpone our 2020 Annual Conference. Many of our departments have suffered severe economic challenges due to the economic shutdown. Additionally, there is fear of another COVID-19 outbreak in the fall. We will return to Starkville in the fall of 2021 and hope you can join us.
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.
