About Parks and Recreation

​​​​Why We're Here:

The Coppell Parks and Recreation Department strives to provide exceptional recreational services to the community; facilitating experiences to enrich the lives of citizens through quality parks and programs.

The department also manages and maintains 544 acres of park land, nature preserves, cemetery, and all city grounds. Facilities include the CORE, Wagon Wheel Tennis Center, the Coppell Senior and Community Center at Grapevine Springs, the Biodiversity Education Center, and Rolling Oaks Memorial Center. 

Coppell Parks and Recreation is CAPRA Accredited!

The Coppell Parks and Recreation Department continues to be among the ranks of elite park and recreation agencies and departments across the country by earning accreditation through the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). The department first received this distinguished accomplishment in 2010, and was re-accredited during the 2015 NRPA Annual Conference in Las Vegas, NV.  

CAPRA accreditation is the only national accreditation for park and recreation agencies, and is a measure of an agency’s overall quality of operation, management and service to the community.  This mark of distinction indicates that an agency has met rigorous standards related to the management and administration of lands, facilities, resources, programs, safety and services. Coppell is one of only 10 cities in the state of Texas to receive this award!

As part of the accreditation process, the department had to demonstrate compliance with 151 recognized standards and document all policies and procedures. Often the process helps identify efficiencies and heighten areas of accountability, all of which translate into higher quality service and operation to benefit the community.
