2014 Year in Review Report (PDF)

This report will provide you with a look at the Recreation Department’s achievements and community impact. We believe it is important to "share our story" with the community and to look back at what we have accomplished in 2014. While we look back at last year it is also important for us to focus on the future of Recreation Services for Fort Collins. We keep a focus on the future by continuing to work on our Operational Strategic Plan and creating a culture of continual improvement.
