[ARCHIVED] Spartanburg Parks is National Accredited


The Spartanburg County Parks Department joins the ranks of elite park and recreation agencies across the country by earning accreditation through the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). This department is just the fourth accredited parks and recreation agency in South Carolina in September 2018.

CAPRA accreditation is the only national accreditation for park and recreation agencies, and is a measure of an agency’s overall quality of operation, management and service to the community. This mark of distinction indicates that an agency has met rigorous standards related to the management and administration of lands, facilities, resources, programs, safety and services.  As part of the accreditation process, Spartanburg County Parks Department had to demonstrate compliance with 151 recognized standards and document all policies and procedures. 

For more information about the accreditation process, please contact Jon Woodsby at
