Planning Actively for Recreational upKeep so Neighborhood Resources Elevate Communities (PARKSNREC) Act of 2022
Currently, DPR operates and manages 14 indoor aquatic centers, 19 outdoor pools, 4 children’s pools, and 27 splash parks. It also has over 100 playgrounds and over 200 small parks that vary in size. Some of these community assets are woefully underutilized, and some are need of repair and refresh. Unfortunately, it is hard for the public to know which recreational facility will receive capital investments and when the funding will be appropriated. The PARKSNREC Act seeks to change that.
