Awards and Recognition


The Parks & Recreation Department strives to provide the Eastvale community with the best possible programs, services, and special events.  Awards and recognition from local, statewide, and national organizations assures residents they are receiving high-quality facilities and programs that meet the highest standards set forth by athletic, parks, and recreation professionals across the United States.



In 2015, the JCSD Parks & Recreation Department joined the ranks of elite park and recreation agencies across the country 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 operations, 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.

On September 10, 2021, JCSD was reaccredited by the CAPRA Commission, scoring 100% by meeting all 154 standards.
