Dickinson Parks and Recreation partnered with the City of Dickinson to develop our Dickinson 2035 “Roadmap to the Future” Comprehensive Plan. The comprehensive plan is a community driven, vision based planning document from which goals, objectives, strategies and policies are provided to guide and facilitate decision making. 

The Dickinson Parks and Recreation Master Plan is a more detailed summary of the specific objectives identified in the 2035 “Roadmap to the Future.” Ultimately, the Master Plan guides the vision and action of DPR to improve the quality of life in our community while meeting our goals and objectives.

Dickinson Parks & Recreation’s Strategic Plan guides the District in setting priorities for three year increments. The plan uses our Core Values, Mission and Vision Statements to align our decision making with the ideas of staff, Board of Park Commissioners and the community. Planning sessions, community user groups and staff brainstorming were all used to develop the 2023-2025 Strategic Plan, which was approved and implemented by the Park Board. The Strategic Plan focuses on our path to enhance the quality of life for the community and its visitors by providing leisure opportunities.

Dickinson Parks & Recreation has completed the 2024-2029 Recreation Programming Plan as a five-year guide to our program services provided to the community of Dickinson.

Becoming a sponsor for our programs and events are some of the best ways to show community support. VIEW MORE.
