The City of Ashland Parks & Recreation (APR) Department was established to provide recreational opportunities to improve the quality of life for area residents and visitors. Our goals are to strengthen the community fabric and sense of place for youth, adult, and visitor populations; to promote health and wellness; to foster human development; to increase cultural unity and to protect our valuable natural resources. APR meets these goals through preserving, maintaining, and enhancing our recreational facilities, parks, and open spaces while also coordinating engaging programs, classes, public events, and festivals. 


 The Bretting Community Center (BCC) is the City of Ashland's recreation headquarters. The facility offers a full-size gymnasium with adjacent locker rooms, a gymnastics facility, and a well-equipped game room featuring two pool tables, a ping-pong table, an air hockey table and a foosball table. The BCC also houses four computer workstations, various video game systems and free, unlimited Wi-Fi internet.
