SDPRA is more than a professional association. We’re a community. Our members work in every discipline in parks and recreation across the state. And we’re all united by a common goal: To improve public places and recreation in South Dakota.
SDPRA members come from state, city and county governments, colleges, the nonprofit sector and private enterprise. They include recreation department directors, park managers, maintenance staff, therapeutic recreation professionals, aquatics staff, planners and support staff. All promote and support the mission and philosophy of the association.
