PRCS 2023 Annual Report

The Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) released its 2023 Annual Report that details the department's milestones, accomplishments and innovative programs.

The Annual Report focuses on PRCS’s mission to connect all communities through exceptional people, parks and programs. “There was much to celebrate in 2023, including recognition of our national award-winning Hanson Park, significant program milestones and the opening of a one-of-a-kind destination playground at the Douglass Community Center,” said Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services Director Steve Torpy. “We would like to thank all of Loudoun County for helping make this past year a successful and memorable one, and we look forward to our continued journey to innovate recreational experiences for everyone,” added Torpy.

The information presented in the report unites the four initiatives of the PRCS Strategic Plan to better fulfill the department’s vision to continue to make Loudoun County the “community of choice through outstanding experiences.” The four initiatives are the framework of the strategic plan and include exceptional experiences for all, the stewardship of departmental resources, optimized operations and comprehensive team development.
