About Parks and Recreation

Creating opportunities to LEARN, LIVE, and EXPLORE in Santa Ana everyday.

We deliver a variety of community services that focus on making lives and communities better.  The core building blocks essential to our services are: access to nature, outdoor spaces to play and exercise, facilities for self-directed and organized recreation, and providing positive alternatives for youth. Our activities and safe spaces encourage social connections, human development, and lifelong learning.

The future looks promising and we are committed to providing exceptional services, facilities, and programs to our residents.
