The New York State Recreation and Park Society (NYSRPS) headquartered in the beautiful Spa State Park is the leading professional membership organization dedicated to promoting quality recreation, parks opportunities, and engagement for all citizens of New York State through education and training for local, county, state and federal recreation and park providers.

Since 1940 NYSRPS has been serving leisure service professionals, providing a wide range of programs and services to work more effectively within the communities they serve. Keeping our park and recreation professionals engaged with the best practices to serve their communities is our top priority.

COVID-19 has forced the 'Vision 2020' NYSRPS Annual Conference and Expo to cancel for April. We are waiting til April to consider dates for fall 2020. We appreciate your patience very much.

COVID-19 has forced many of our park departments to close, yet parks and trails remain open. See the National Recreation and Park Association's latest release of best practices relative to PARK AND PLAYGROUND USE DURING COVID-19. Be sure your own municipality's park regulations are clearly communicated. While we endorse getting fresh air and time outside, please ensure these are in compliance with PAUSE NY, as well. 

In light of business not as usual, NYSRPS is working hard to adapt and serve our members and their communities at large, via an online platform. Stay tuned for opportunities to engage, while at home.

Coming Soon- New York State Recreation Park Society Recreation Online Resource Center.
