The Buena Vista Recreation Department's vision is to serve the local community by facilitating affordable and inclusive recreational opportunities.

Our mission is to support individuals' well-being by:
              - Providing recreation programs that inspire a variety of interests,
               including sports, music, and fine arts.
              - Organizing special events that promote community
                development through positive social interaction.

              - Facilitating stewardship of our outdoor recreation resources
              - Communicating with the Recreation Advisory Board to address
                the evolving needs of the community.

BV REC works with local enthusiasts, instructors, businesses and citizens, and currently provides over 75 athletic, cultural, and expeditionary activities. We know you’ll find something here to get you excited! If what you’re looking for isn’t offered, we will work with you to find out where it is offered or what might be required to get it going.
Refund Policy: Program fees are set to cover the costs associated with the planning and implementation of the program. Because we are a relatively small community, many of our program enrollments are also small. When you register for a class, we depend on your participation for a successful class. As a result, refunds will be awarded sparingly, primarily for medical or other emergency situations.
If you are unable to participate in a program for any reason, we will fully refund your fee up until a week prior to the start of the program. If you need to withdraw from a program as a result of a medical or other emergency after the program has begun, we will pro-rate your refund based on the number of classes attended. Refunds or transfers may not be granted for any program, activity, or event cancelled due to inclement weather or other circumstances beyond the control of the Recreation Department.
