Northwest Park & Recreation District #2 was created in 1979 with the boundaries of the Blaine School District minus Point Roberts. Inactive since 1987, the newly energized NWPRD2 is working with a new mission statement, a new Master Plan, and sponsoring ongoing recreational activities and adult & youth educational classes. Parks within the district include Birch Bay State Park and Peace Arch Park.
Their Mission Statement says it all – “The mission of Northwest Park & Recreation
District 2 is to provide recreational opportunities, acquire and maintain sites that enhance our quality of life, and preserve the natural and recreational resources of the district.”
Northwest Park & Recreation District #2 is run by a Board of 5 Elected Commissioners, Chaired by Ted Morris. Ted will be our speaker this month and he will be telling us about all the varied activities the District does, as well as updating us on the other two parks he manages, Birch Bay State Park and Peace Arch Park.
