About Us

  • MISSION STATEMENT
    The Mission of Widefield School District 3 Parks & Recreation is to create, promote, foster, and maintain programs, activities and facilities that positively impact the quality of life for all segments of our community.


    PHILOSOPHY
    The primary purpose of the WSD3 Parks & Recreation is to provide the best programs for the most people.

    While we will always seek to offer a wide range of programs, we recognize that we must live within our budget and believe that the highest priority for programs should be those that are educationally sound as well as personally meaningful to the community.

    We believe our programs must emphasize participation, value to participants, safety, equal opportunity, and lifelong skill development.


    ADVISORY BOARD
    The WSD3 Parks & Recreation Advisory Board meets the second Thursday of each month. The meetings are held at the Parks & Recreation at 6pm. The board consists of up to seven members, to include one member of the WSD3 Board of Education and up to six community members. Current members are: Korey Hutchison (President), Landon Finch (Vice President), Brent Bloyd, Janele Johnson, Neil Nelson (Board of Education), Kiri Carmody (WHS student representative), Isaac Remington (MRHS student representative), Celysia Galdean (DHS student representative). Members of the community are invited to attend.
