Our Mission:

To develop, operate and maintain a park and recreational system which enriches the quality of life for residents and visitors alike, while being stewards of the land which preserves the legacy of Colfax for future generations.

Our Vision:

Colfax Park & Recreation Auxilliary Board is a public agency of volunteers, working to meet the recreational needs of the growing Colfax community.  We uphold a philosophy of safe, healthy and unbiased programming.  We strive to enhance the interaction of people and the environment in a manner which is accessible to all.
