Magazines

There are two official publications produced by the BCRPA:

Recreation & Parks BC and FitLifeBC


Recreation & Parks BC

This publication is produced by recreation and parks professionals with each issue featuring articles by guest writers on the latest innovations, trends, and current activities within the recreation and parks sector; as well as news reports from communities throughout the province.

For all those working in and with BC's recreation and parks sector, this is the resource to help keep you connected and informed.

BCRPA Regional Liaisons, and as well as members, serve on the Recreation & Parks BC magazine publication committee, contributing to the development of issue themes and content and collecting the Regional Roundups and Whereabouts for each issue.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia in the production of this resource.
