Budget Year / Version:

Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Recreation is to provide high quality, diverse, and accessible programs, services, and facilities that enhance the quality of life for all ages, cultures, and abilities.


Budget Overview

The total approved FY18 Operating Budget for the Department of Recreation is $37,769,874, an increase of $3,481,975 or 10.16 percent from the FY17 Approved Budget of $34,287,899. Personnel Costs comprise 64.31 percent of the budget for 139 full-time position(s) and ten part-time position(s), and a total of 464.79 FTEs. Total FTEs may include seasonal or temporary positions and may also reflect workforce charged to or from other departments or funds. Operating Expenses account for the remaining 35.69 percent of the FY18 budget.

The increase in FY18 funding is from the addition of several positive youth development initiatives, one senior initiative, and staffing changes.

The Debt Service for the Recreation Fund is appropriated in the Debt Service Fund and is, therefore, not displayed in this section. To pay for the Debt Service, a transfer of funds from the Recreation fund to the Debt Service Fund of $11,003,380 is required to cover general obligation bond and long-term lease costs. Additionally, it should be noted that the Department manages an estimated $8,635,521 Agency Fund. This Fund is designated for handling contracted programs and services and is entirely revenue supported. The net proceeds of these activities are accounted for in the Recreation Fund.

In addition, this department's Capital Improvements Program (CIP) requires Current Revenue funding.

Linkage to County Result Areas

While this program area supports all eight of the County Result Areas, the following are emphasized:

  • Children Prepared to Live and Learn
  • Healthy and Sustainable Neighborhoods
  • Vital Living for All of Our Residents

  Senior Adult Programs

The Seniors Program offers services for adults age 55 and above including senior centers, neighborhood programs, classes, sports and fitness, trips, and special programs. It serves seniors who are frail and isolated and those who are very active. Senior programs are offered in 13 community centers, inclusive of classes, special events, and Senior Sneakers Program.

Senior Centers: The department-operated senior centers are open five to six days per week and provide social, physical, recreational, educational, and community oriented activities. Recreation opportunities range from organized classes such as fitness, art, and computer skills to more informal activities such as billiards, discussion groups, and guest speakers. These centers are focal points for the delivery of recreation, community, and health-related services to senior adults.

Transportation: The department provides a combination of curb-to-curb and fixed route transportation shuttles to five senior centers Monday to Friday. County residents 55 and over are eligible for this program if they are within the service area for one of the centers. Senior centers in this program include: Damascus, Holiday Park, Margaret Schweinhaut, Long Branch, and White Oak. Also available are mini trips to local attractions and businesses. These trips are generally local and scheduled for a few hours in length.

55+ Active Adult Programs: These programs serve active senior individuals who meet in community recreation centers or other facilities near their homes one to three days each week. These programs offer special interest classes, trips, social activities, and food services at selected sites.

Although not listed specifically under the Senior Programs section, the department offers a wide variety of programming for baby boomers and Senior Adults through the classes, trips and tours, aquatics, and sports teams. It is also the organizer, promoter, and registrar for the Maryland Senior Olympics.

  Recreation Outreach Services

Events: The department of Recreation coordinates special events and other activities, which offer a variety of benefits, including enhancing a sense of community, encouraging family participation, and providing a positive image of the County. These special events offer opportunities for interaction among the various segments of our multi-cultural community and provide a chance to celebrate our rich cultural diversity. Several of the department's larger events are the Fourth of July Celebrations, Pike's Peek Road Race, Silver Spring Jazz Festival, and the annual Thanksgiving Parade.

Partnerships: The department partners with many County and outside agencies and organizations to provide various leisure opportunities for the residents of the County. More formal partnerships and contracts include the Arts and Humanities Council, Public Arts Trust, BlackRock Center for the Arts, and the YMCA.

Services to Special Populations: The Therapeutic Recreation Team provides accessible leisure, educational, and personal development activities for individuals with disabilities through mainstreaming and adaptive programs. The department has staff trained to develop and implement accessible leisure, educational, and personal skill development activities for individuals with disabilities through mainstreaming, community integration, and adaptive programs. The department offers programs including classes, camps, sports, and activities, which enhance the lives of individuals with disabilities and provide support for the families of participants, ages pre-school through adult. The activities available to residents with disabilities through the department are often the only opportunities these individuals have for leisure activities since community options are limited.

  Management Services

This team includes the department's infrastructure support group primarily engaged in furnishing overall operational or specialized management services on a day-to-day basis. The program is targeted for customer service, training, IT maintenance, software, computers and point of sale management, personnel/payroll, accounting functions, budget & planning, procurement and contractual review, and other fiscal matters, as well as technology improvements. Also included in this team is the department's graphic designer, who designs the department's website, fliers, brochures, publications, and the Recreation Guide. This unit also manages a robust financial assistance program that allows thousands of low-income residents to have access to programs, facilities, and activities they could not otherwise afford.

  Planned Lifecycle Asset Replacement

PLAR provides funding for a lifecycle replacement program to protect the department's investment in facilities and equipment and to sustain efficient and reliable facility maintenance and operations. The program is targeted at slowing the deterioration of the equipment and structures in department facilities. Specifically, the program includes interior space modifications, security system enhancements, refinishing gymnasium floors and bleachers, and the repair/replacement of furniture, fixtures, and equipment in the department's facilities.

  Fixed Costs

Fixed Costs include costs associated with utilities, property insurance, Workers' Compensation insurance, and grants to the City of Takoma Park.

  Administration/Policy Management

The department's administration staff provides the management and supervisory oversight to accomplish the agency's mission, goals, and objectives. This team includes the department's senior managers and staff who provide policy development, accountability, evaluation, and planning.

Capital Programs (CIP): Within the Office of the Director, this staff manages the Department's long-range facility planning efforts and the Capital Improvement Program, or CIP, including the development of new facilities and the renovation and modernization of existing recreation facilities.

  Youth Development

In support of the County Executive's Positive Youth Development Initiative, Montgomery County Department of Recreation's Youth Development Team is generating an enhanced and vibrant approach to service delivery, which focuses on equity, reaching out to all young people while targeting vulnerable youth. Program staff work to change the landscape of communities by tackling pressing and diverse issues, reducing barriers to participation, and improving access to high quality out-of-school time opportunities through programs such as Rec Zone, Excel Beyond the Bell, Rec Extra, TeenWorks, Dream Academy (Child First), Soccer for Change, and a wide variety of other events and activities.

The Youth Development Team uses recreation to ensure young people are healthy, connected, and productive during out-of-school time. The positive youth development strategies work to meet youth where they are and include opportunities, programs, and services which emphasize active and healthy living, youth leadership and social equity, engagement in learning, workforce readiness, and connection to caring adult role models. Programs take place in elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, community centers, public spaces, and neighborhoods across the Country.
