Today, DRPS members are park and recreation professionals, businesses, students and    concerned citizens.

DRPS seeks to bring together everyone involved in structured activities relating to recreation; parks; natural, historical, cultural and therapeutic facilities; and conservation programs, into a unified force.

Our members strive to involve citizens in governmental proceedings and planning so the recreation, park, natural and historical resources, and conservation potential of Delaware can be realized.
