Improving the quality of life for all in Maine

The Maine Recreation & Park Association is a 501c3 non profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all in Maine.

MRPA members work year-round to increase recreational opportunities and promote a healthy lifestyle for Maine citizens of all ages. We do this by supporting the professionals who deliver Maine's public park and recreation programs, and by serving as a statewide voice for access to public recreation and open space.
