Mission Statement

The mission of the Davis Parks & Recreation Commission Inc. is to provide, operate, maintain and improve safe and functional facilities that can be used for multiple recreational purposes for all ages of the community and its visitors. The Davis Parks & Recreation Commission, Inc. was established in 1999 but had become inactive leading to 2016 when efforts from the Town of Davis’ Mayor & Council, Town residents and remaining board members revived the organization. At this time, the Commission has a full volunteer board, and in conjunction with the Town of Davis, oversees the Davis Ball Field, the Davis Community Center, the Davis Riverfront Park and the Tucker Boulder Park.

Lacking an allocated yearly budget, the Davis P & R Commission must rely on fundraisers such as their Run-For-It Team (Davis Riverfront Ramblers). Grants and any donations that may be given to the Commission. These limited funds represent all the money the Commission has to oversee all the parks and facilities under their care and management.
