High Point Parks & Recreation Earns National Accreditation

High Point 1

CAPRA is part of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). Only 14 parks and recreation agencies within the state of North Carolina are currently CAPRA-accredited, with only 192 in the entire United States - less than 1% of all parks and recreation agencies in the country.

CAPRA accreditation, the sole national accreditaion for park and recreation agencies, is a measure of an agency’s overall quality of operations, management and service to the community. This mark of distinction means that an agency has met rigorous standards related to the management and administration of lands, facilities, resources, programs, safety, communications and services. As part of the accreditation process, High Point Parks & Recreation had to demonstrate compliance with an extensive list of recognized standards and document all policies and procedures associated with them. Of 154 standards, our department successfully passed all 154. 

“We are extremely honored to be a CAPRA-accredited agency,” said Lee Tillery, Director of High Point Parks & Recreation. “Accreditation demonstrates that our department is operating under the best practices of our profession. It also shows what we already knew: that High Point is a wonderful community in which to work, play and live.”
