Our mission: The BCRD is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing Blaine County’s quality of life by creating healthy, active recreational opportunities for all.

•   Our vision: 
 Blaine County will feel like home, an exceptional place for a diverse community of people to live where recreation is the cornerstone of healthy and active lives. 

•   Our core values:
Health • Inclusiveness • Quality • Community 

•   Our pledge:
To honor BCRD's strong tradition of improving the quality of recreation while working to meet the needs of our growing community.

Since the creation of the BCRD in 1976 by a group of visionary citizens, we have helped to make the Wood River Valley a safe, healthy, enjoyable place to live, work and play. Our reach grows wider with each passing year beginning with our core recreational facilities, the BCRD Aquatic Center and the beloved Wood River Trail fondly known as the "bike path”.

Our reach continues with the addition of many diverse recreational offerings designed to meet the needs of our entire community. These include, Sports and Leagues, Summer Youth Camp and after school programs, Sand Volleyball, tennis courts and a Pump Track, the BCRD Fitworks Fitness Facility and Gym and Galena Lodge and the Trails, both summer and winter. We work hard to serve thousands of Blaine County residents and visitors to ensure that recreation is the cornerstone of healthy, active and productive lives.

Why we matter: Why is recreation so important and valued by all of us? Why does the BCRD matter? Consider this. We know that regular physical activity can boost your mood, help you control your weight and reduce your risk for chronic illness. Exercise makes your heart stronger, builds muscle and improves your cholesterol levels. It lowers your blood pressure, strengthens bones and generally slows the aging process.

On top of all that, physical activity is fun and fulfilling, providing a chance to connect with others, learn something new or just get away from it all and spend time alone. Recreation should be a priority for everybody who wants to be healthy, happy and fit. To us, recreation is the common thread that unites families, children and adults and creates not only healthy lifelong habits, but a true sense of community as well.

we want to know about you!
