Riverside County Supervisor Karen Spiegel Joins the JCSD Board of Directors to Unveil the Parks and Recreation Department’s CAPRA Reaccreditation Plaque


Supervisor Spiegel joined the Board of Directors at their regular meeting held at the Eastvale Community Center.

Jurupa Valley, CA (March 15, 2022) – Riverside County Supervisor Karen Spiegel, District 2, joined the Jurupa Community Services District’s (JCSD) Board of Directors yesterday to unveil the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) reaccreditation plaque. Supervisor Spiegel also spoke at the JCSD Board of Directors regular meeting, which was held at the Eastvale Community Center for the special occasion.

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 peer verification based on 154 rigorous standards. JCSD Parks and Recreation met all 154 standards and received a score of 100%.

JCSD is one of only three California agencies to achieve CAPRA accreditation. Supervisor Spiegel is in the noteworthy position of having two of the three agencies operating within her district: JCSD and the Riverside County Regional Park and Open-Space District (RivCoParks). Supervisor Spiegel serves as Vice-Chair of the RivCoParks Board of Directors.
“I am proud of both RivCoParks and JCSD for their accomplishment as two premier agencies offering quality services to the community,” said Supervisor Spiegel. “As Vice-Chair of the RivCoParks Board of Directors, I know the hard work and quality services needed to achieve CAPRA accreditation.”

JCSD first received CAPRA accreditation in September 2015 and RivCoParks received it in October 2013. Accreditation lasts for five years.

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) 727-3524.

Founded in 1956, the Jurupa Community Services District is a public governmental agency which provides services and programs to the cities of Jurupa Valley and Eastvale. It is governed by five elected representatives (Board of Directors) from both cities. 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.
