On September 14, 2015, Jurupa Community Services District’s (JCSD) Parks and Recreation Department, which serves those within the boundaries of Hellman, Hamne, Bellgrave and the Santa Ana River, joined the ranks of elite park and recreation agencies and departments across the country, and one of only five (5) agencies within the state of California, by earning accreditation through the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).  

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.
