Welcome to the Virginia Recreation and Park Society, a private non-profit professional organization based in Richmond, and serving members throughout the commonwealth. Founded in 1953, incorporated in 1956, the Society's mission is "to unite all professionals, students, and interested lay persons engaged in the field of recreation, parks and other leisure services in the Commonwealth of Virginia into one body." The Society has a number of fine goals and membership services as well as a dedicated Central Office staff. I hope you will take a minute to review each of these to get a better understanding of the valuable work that the Society undertakes.

If I can ever be of any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me.
