The Jefferson County Parks & Recreation Commission (JCPRC) is a government agency that’s mission is to
provide safe public parks and year round recreational activities for the citizens in the Jefferson County community. The JCPRC operates or maintains ten county parks that encompass over 400 acres of park land and a variety of park facilities, including the Jefferson County Community Center, picnic pavilions, walking trails, playgrounds, tennis courts, athletic fields and open space.


The JCPRC was established in 1970 by the Jefferson County Commission and is made up of an eleven member volunteer board that meets once a month at the Jefferson County Community Center. Its board members are appointed by the Jefferson County Commission for two and three-year terms and then may be re-appointed after their term has expired. The JCPRC hired a full-time director in 1994 to run the Parks & Recreation Department and has since steadily grown to include five full-time staff members, two part-time staff members, eight seasonal maintenance staff and numerous other program staff.

JCPRC exists to provide places and recreation opportunities for all people to gather, celebrate, contemplate, and engage in activities that promote health, well-being, community, and the environment. Its mission is to take a leadership role in harnessing resources for the purpose of planning, developing, implementing, evaluating, and operating a county-wide system of parks, recreation, conservation areas, and trail opportunities for people who live, work, and visit Jefferson County WV.

The JCPRC main office is located in the Jefferson County Community Center in Sam Michael's Park.
