WPD Mission Statement
In 2004, the Wheeling Park District adopted a new logo and a new mission statement. The changes express the Park District’s renewed commitment to YOU. YOU are the driving force behind all the Park District offers. The new logo is a reminder that at the Wheeling Park District “We’re People Driven.”
Our Mission is to provide memorable experiences in parks & recreation that enrich our communities.
The organization is working toward a future where all ages and backgrounds find memorable experiences in parks and recreation. The Park District is dedicated to enriching our communities of infants and toddlers, Preschoolers, school-age children, high schoolers, adults, mature adults, and families.
"The future of the Park District will be determined by our communities," said Executive Director Jan Buchs. "We embrace the diversity of needs within our communities, and welcome everyone to experience parks and recreation with the Wheeling Park District."
The Park District will continue to assess, understand, and meet the communities’ park and recreation needs; to increase awareness of Wheeling Park District; and to exceed your expectations.
Thank you for visiting, and we hope to see you soon!
