Mission Statement

The City of Dunn Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to creating positive experiences by providing quality parks, facilities, services and programs for all our citizens. The goal of our youth athletic program is to offer a rich year-round schedule of athletic activities that encourage children to play a variety of sports, and to provide them with the opportunity to have fun while developing physically, emotionally and socially. The Recreation Department will strive to teach skills and sportsmanship through participation in the development of all youth and to teach the rules of play in each specific sport.
