What is mParks?

The voice of Michigan's parks and recreation community.

We advocate.
We teach.
We inspire.

It's easy to forget. How good it feels outdoors. How good it feels to put aside your chores and obligations and play a little where skies are blue, trees are green, and water runs. How good it feels to make time for friends, family, that special someone. . . and yourself. It's easy to forget the most important lesson of your childhood. . . that nothing quite compares to the freedom and adventure and joy you'll find on the other side of the wall. We understand. We're the people of the Michigan Recreation and Park Association. Making better parks, better communities, better lives, and a better state for all. And we're here to invite you out where the air is fresh and the world feels new. Your state parks. Your county parks. Your community parks and recreation areas. It's a wonderful world out here. Be sure to join us. The Michigan Recreation and Park Association. Come out and play.
