Mission Statement

The mission of the Darien Parks and Recreation Department is to nurture active and passive recreational activities within existing Town parklands; to maintain clean and attractive facilities, and to adjust and expand both the recreational programs and parklands to meet the recreational requirements of all residents in a cost effective manner.

The primary goal of the Department is to provide an environment which promotes and encourages the enhancement of individual lives through the social, physical, mental, and emotional benefits of participation in physical activity or passive involvement within the parks.
