What are our Levels of Care? Why do we use them? 

The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) identifies six levels of maintenance ranging from the highest (1) to the lowest (6). These standards are benchmarked against current and past maintenance practices, the nature and needs of each park plus the amenities within each location. The weather, variations in seasonal growing, hardscapes/fences and available staffing all impact levels of service.
