Parks & Recreation

Davenport has the lone accredited Parks and Recreation Department in the state of Iowa and is one of only 155 in the United States.

The department received re-accreditation in 2016 by the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) after being evaluated on 151 fundamental and non-fundamental standards. Parks passed all 37 of the fundamental standards and missed out on just two of the non-fundamental standards set by CAPRA.
