Jurupa Community Services District Granted Prestigious CAPRA Reaccreditation
JCSD Parks and Recreation is one of only four California agencies to achieve this status.
Jurupa Valley, CA (September 28, 2021) Jurupa Community Services District (JCSD) has received formal approval of reaccreditation through the Commission for Accreditation of Parks and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA).
The CAPRA accreditation assures that an accredited park and recreation agency has the operational capacity to deliver programs, facilities, and services at a high level of quality. To achieve accreditation, applicants are evaluated through a process of peer verification based off 154 rigorous standards. Accreditation is difficult to achieve, and only four other agencies in California have been granted this accreditation. JCSD Parks and Recreation met all 154 standards and received a score of 100%.
“I am incredibly proud of our team for this amazing accomplishment,” said Steve Lawson, Director of JCSD Parks and Recreation. “Not only was our agency able to receive a rare accreditation in our industry, but we were also able to do so with a perfect score.”
JCSD previously received the accreditation in September 2015. Accreditation lasts for five years, and JCSD will seek reaccreditation again in 2026.
JCSD Parks and Recreation offers approximately 230 acres of parkland with state-of-the-art facilities, as well as 12 categories of recreation programs that include Youth Sports, Dance, and Music. To learn more about JCSD Parks and Recreation, as well as the programs and events offered, please visit www.JCSD.us or call (951) 727-3521.

Serving over 130,000 people in a 40-square-mile area, JCSD provides a variety of community services and programs including water, sewer, street lights, frontage landscape maintenance, graffiti abatement, and parks and recreation services.
