Our Philosophy & Commitment


​ Improving customer loyalty is very important in today’s climate.  BCRPD offers a variety of classes and events that require a varied level of fees and costs.  This allows us to make our programs accessible to more community members to participate in our programs.  In general, fees are lower than you may see in other areas, although competitive prices are still considered in some situations.  Classes are set up as fee based or District sponsored.    Some recover their costs while others don’t.  Fall and winter months see a larger number of visitors at the Recreation Center.  On average, there is about 2500 that visit each month to participate in one of our programs and events.  In the summer months, there is an increase in park usage and park rentals.
