Albuquerque’s Department Mission, Vision and Values
Mission: The mission of the City of Albuquerque’s Department of Parks, Recreation, & Community Services is to:
Protect, plan, enhance, and maintain a Parks, Major Public Open Space, and Trails System that gives Albuquerque its sense of place.
Promote economic development and tourism by continuing to provide quality, affordable facilities and programs (e.g. Golf, Recreation, Swimming Pools, Parks, Open Space, Balloon Fiesta Park, Shooting Range, and Sporting Events).
Assure quality educational programs for youth to encourage positive behavior towards a conservation ethic and therefore combat “Nature Deficit Disorder.”
Provide quality recreation programs to encourage healthy, active lifestyles for all ages.
Encourage and develop a healthy and safe work environment, ethical management practices, and a spirit of teamwork for all Parks and Recreation employees.
