The Knowledge Center is a members-only benefit which is part of the NRPA Connect community. NRPA is committed to the development and delivery of learning opportunities -- creating and distributing research, standards, and leading practices -- to its members. Members can view and share documents, standards, best practices and research used by park and recreation professionals and agencies around the country. 

Categorized documents include:

  • strategic plans,
  • accreditation standard documentation,
  • program guides,
  • codes and ordinances,
  • and much more!

NRPA encourages all member agencies to share their relevant materials -- if they are essential to you, they may be a great reference for others. Once you have logged in, sort through the available folders and sub-folders, and upload your documents, link websites, and add book reviews.
