Vision for Recreation 

Bellevue is a healthy community where all people participate in a range of recreation activities of their choice, offered by any service provider, allowing greater physical and mental health and increased connections to their neighbors and the community.

  2. Building Community: We are a trusted resource that creates and enhances relationships and connections between our residents.
     
  3. Culture of Excellence: We provide and/or facilitate inclusive, accessible, and equitable recreation programs for all, where everyone can expect quality staff, programs, and facilities.
     
  4. Dynamic and Resourceful: We are highly responsive to an ever-changing and diverse community, providing opportunities that are relevant and well-coordinated.
