4.3.6 Programs and Services

Programs and services offered by the Parks, Recreation

and Cultural Resources Department meet a variety of

needs and priorities to foster a creative, healthy and

accessible community. Access to opportunities for

maintaining an active lifestyle promotes a healthier

community and reduces long-term medical costs for

residents. The City of Raleigh believes that a diverse,

multi-cultural population strengthens the fabric of

the community by exposing residents to different

backgrounds and cultures. In addition, diversity

teaches both children and adults tolerance and respect

for different viewpoints and traditions. For youth

and teens, mentorships and educational programs

encourage an active and engaged age group by instilling

characteristics of good citizenship. Providing accessible,

inclusive and independent options for residents of all

abilities and age groups continues to make Raleigh an

attractive place to live and conduct business.

Goal 1: The City of Raleigh will provide

opportunities for every resident to maintain a

healthy lifestyle.

Goal 2: The City of Raleigh will improve

outreach and foster a welcoming multi-cultural

environment.

Goal 3: The City of Raleigh will identify and

eliminate barriers to participation in parks,

recreation and cultural programs for preschool,

youth and teens of all abilities throughout the city.

Goal 4:The City of Raleigh will provide inclusive

and independent spaces, facilities and programs

that are accessible to all residents regardless of

ability and age.

Goal 5: The City of Raleigh will continue to

promote the community as a premier retirement

destination where residents can stay active and

healthy; enjoy amenities of the Triangle area;

have access to high quality health resources; and

enrich the community through business, social,

and volunteer activities.
