We Rise Up for Parks and Recreation: Meet the Recreation Division!

Nothing is better than enjoying free time after work or school to celebrate your efforts and spend time doing something you love.

The Recreation Division knows what it’s like to work hard and play hard! This incredible team is responsible for many programs and services that help the Community Services Department create life-long memories for our residents. It wouldn’t be Parks and Recreation without the biggest Division in the department.

Let’s spend some time learning more about the crucial work these Parks and Recreation professionals do.

The Recreation Division provides world-class experiences to our program participants, Champions Club members, Bob Jones Nature Center visitors, athletics participants, and Tennis Center guests. With approximately 170 employees during our busiest seasons, the Recreation team makes up 75% of the Community Services Department and manages five key business areas!

Athletics: The athletics team is responsible for providing athletic opportunities to athletes of all ages. From flag football, volleyball, and basketball leagues to clinics and youth camps, there’s an athletics program for everyone!

Aquatics: Champions Club wouldn’t be what it is without the incredible team that manages our world-class Aquatics Center. These dedicated team members work hard to ensure everyone that visits the Aquatics Center is safe and having a wonderful time.

Fitness and Performance: Champions Club is not like any other fitness center, and that’s partially thanks to our Fitness team! They manage the fitness floor and provide welcoming customer service to our members while innovating new fitness programs.

Guest Services: The Guest Services team is the face of Champions Club! From the front desk to our friendly and resourceful Managers on Duty, this team provides excellent customer service to all Champions Club members. They are the team in charge of executing the Membership Retention and Acquisition Plan, which includes the incredible member appreciation events and campaigns that set us apart from our competition!

Marq Maintenance: You don’t become an award-winning facility without a fantastic maintenance team. This dedicated group of staff is responsible for facility safety, maintenance, contract management, and the custodial needs of The Marq Southlake.

Programs: The Programs team works tirelessly to provide preschool, youth, teen, adult, and family recreation programming across our city facilities and parks year-round. From our incredible summer camps, Forest Pre-School, and world-class Adaptive Recreation services to Champions Club classes and outdoor recreation, this team does it all!

We couldn’t do what we do best without the dedicated recreation professionals that make up the Recreation Division. Thank you for rising up for our community every day!
