About Us

Our Mission: To enrich and preserve the quality of life for Powhatan County residents and visitors

Powhatan prides itself on being a small, rural community. Our mission as a Parks & Rec Department is to meet the recreational needs of county residents, to make Powhatan a fun place to work and live, and to highlight the natural beauty and recreational assets of the county to intrigue residents and visitors to view Powhatan as a great place to play.

Our Vision: To be an inspiring Parks & Recreation Department

Our goal is to put Powhatan Parks & Rec on the map as an award-winning department. We want other small departments to look to Powhatan's parks, facilities, and programs for inspiration.

Our Goals: To increase tourism, build quality programs, improve and expand facilities, parks, trails, and fields

Our goals were influenced by the Board of Supervisors, citizen surveys, and the 2020 Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment.
