Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Parks and Recreation Department creates community through people, parks and programs. We:
Provide an appropriate mix of safe, well maintained and well designed parks, open spaces and community center facilities that are accessible for all residents
Create enriching leisure opportunities for all age groups that support lifetime users and enhance the physical, intellectual, social and cultural growth and development of our residents
Enhance the value of parks and recreation as an essential community service by ensuring access for all and providing outstanding customer service, effective public information and strategic engagement with identified community partners
Preserve and protect the City's natural resources including its urban forest, public open spaces, pedestrian and bicycle trails and landscaped medians and islands
Part of what makes a great community is the feeling of belonging - knowing there are opportunities to interact, to explore and to enrich life all in your own neighborhood. Parks and Recreation has a number of programs to help create that sense of community.
For youth development, we offer a broad variety of activities and special events that serve ages ranging from infancy through teen age years. Should you decide to volunteer with our agency, you will interact with these populations in a stimulating and ever changing environment. Our tiny patrons will keep you on your toes and smiling.
