Mission Statement

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in the County by promoting a healthy lifestyle, efficiently providing high quality facilities and programs reflective of current and anticipated recreational needs of County residents and visitors - with particular emphasis on preserving fragile lands, water quality, wildlife habitat, creating pedestrian and greenway connections and providing high quality services to those of all backgrounds.


Washtenaw County's 27 cities, villages and townships are home to about 325,000 citizens in urban, suburban, and rural settings. This mix of different settings provides many opportunities for education, recreation, business, agricultural, and home life. The two largest cities are Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, homes to two large universities - the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti.

Would you recommend Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission?

by Madeleine V. (September 9, 2018)
This was so much fun! The volunteers get to pet dogs that come up to them and greet owners. If you are great with dogs I highly recommend this. I have never had this much fun volunteering and will be doing next year.
