Welcome to the NRPA Special Parks Districts Network
This online network is intended to be a forum for discussion, sharing of knowledge, and posing of questions unique to the needs and interests of Special Parks Districts.
NRPA’s history of involvement with Special Park Districts dates back 40 years when NRPA hosted the first meeting of the Special Park District Forum at the NRPA Congress in Anaheim, CA, in 1972. This professional network recognizes the importance and value of SPD’s to public parks and recreation, and revitalizes NRPA’s commitment to the needs of Special Park District agencies.
The Special Parks Districts online network through NRPA Connect is designed to be your forum for exchange of information and knowledge. Please use it freely and frequently, and invite other NRPA members who are part of Special Parks Districts to join in the discussions.
