Our Mission

Mission Statement
To make life better and enrich the quality of life for our community by providing a variety of leisure time and recreation activities, parks, and facilities that promote health and wellness, learning, and fun. 


To serve our community and be recognized as a quality recreation and park district we must:

  • Be financially stable and sustainable.
  • Be the leisure time and recreational activities provider of choice in the Victor Valley.
  • Distinguish HRPD as a major partner with other agencies and organizations for recreation, park, and open space needs.
  • Be an employer of choice.
  • Be the best part of our patron’s day by demonstrating excellent customer service that exceeds expectations.
  • Evolve with emerging opportunities, while maintaining our existing facilities and infrastructure.
  • Actively market, promote, inform, and educate our residents about the many benefits of recreation, parks, and open space.

Core Values
When making policy-level decisions if the answer to the following questions is “yes”, then that direction embraces the District’s Core Values:

  • Does it provide cost-appropriate programs to our service area?
  • Does it build on and leverage our network of partners?
  • Does it reflect our commitment to meet the diverse needs of those we serve?

  • Does it support those that make it happen every day – our employees and volunteers?
  • Will it support best workplace practices?
  • Does it support our ability to govern as a Board and team with honesty, openness, and respect?
