What We Do
The Columbus Recreation and Parks Department stewards more than 14,500 acres of green space. With more than 380 parks, 29 community centers, 5 athletic complexes, 6 golf courses and 120 miles of regional trails, the vision to ensure every resident has access to all of the department’s many services is bold.
Tax dollars play an important role in our parks and recreation facilities. However, they alone cannot provide all of the funds needed to maintain and improve vital community services and programs. The establishment of the CRP Foundation fulfills the recommendation to expand partnership opportunities as recommended by the 2014 Master Plan. The CRP Foundation, independent but collaborative in spirit, focuses on leveraging public-private partnerships and philanthropic gifts
