The 2017 Johnson County is a different county than it was when the last comprehensive parks and recreation strategic plan was prepared in 2000. In the seventeen years since the MAP 2020 plan, Johnson County has grown not just in population, but has become a more diverse community with rising interests in natural resources and active living.
In the past 17 plus years, the county's landscape of parks and recreation has seen a significant evolution both at the municipal and district levels as well as within the private sector. Throughout this growth, JCPRD has remained at the forefront of the field as stewards and recreation service innovators, acquiring environmentally significant land holdings, and providing residents with new and relevant offerings. JCPRD seeks to continue these traditions and harness the district's capabilities to focus the organization's future and growth on work that is responsive to an evolving Johnson County.
Ultimately the legacy of JCPRD is the sum of our committed staff and patron experiences. Throughout the changes that the county has experienced and will face in the future, Johnson County Park & Recreation District is committed to evolving to maintain its relationship with the community as partners and providers of the types of services residents and visitors value.
