The master plan is a key implementation tool for our department and is intended to be strategic in focus to help the department respond to three important questions:

What do we do?
For whom to we do it?
How do we excel?

We have had several public input meetings, but would like to hear from you!

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.


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