The mission of the Auburn Parks and Recreation Department is twofold: to provide quality leisure services, and facilities to the citizens of Auburn and to appropriately manage Auburn's cemeteries. We will achieve this by:

  • Establishing and organizing quality programs that address the diverse leisure interests of Auburn's citizens
  • Managing safe, well-maintained parks, facilities, and cemeteries
  • Exceeding the needs of citizens, advisory groups, local officials, and the media through a commitment to effective and efficient delivery of services and a positive approach to customer service
  • Continuing to offer innovative programs and up-to-date facilities
