(Washington, DC) – The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) last week announced the implementation of new regulations and fees. However, DPR has no plans to charge DC residents for general swimming or the use of fitness centers. Those fees have been waived for DC residents.
The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) provides quality urban recreation and leisure services for residents and visitors to the District of Columbia. DPR supervises and maintains area parks, community facilities, swimming pools and spray parks, and neighborhood recreation centers. The agency also coordinates a wide variety of recreation and educational programs including sports leagues, youth development, therapeutic recreation, aquatic programming, outdoor adventure, camping and senior citizen activities. Adaptive programs and facilities are available for persons with disabilities.
