Recreation Services


The Recreation Services Department is responsible for providing recreation and leisure opportunities for residents and visitors of all ages. These programs are offered with the hope that they not only meet the community's interests, but also inspire residents to try something new. The department offers adult and youth programs and classes, sport leagues, childcare programs, and special events which are highlighted in a seasonal activity guide. The Recreation Services Department manages scheduling and reservations for all recreational facilities, including parks and barbecue areas, community centers, and athletic fields. The department also provides staff support for the Parks and Recreation Commission's monthly meetings.


On August 9th, 2017, the Parks and Recreation Commission approved the distribution of a community opinion survey to get public input on the City’s current parks, facilities, and recreation programs. The City is looking to update the Parks and Recreation Element of the General Plan, and the survey results will be used to help shape goals and policies in the update process.

The City will be collecting survey responses from August 14th through November 30th. The survey is available to take online or in hard copy, in both English and Spanish. Hard copies of the survey will be made available at the following City offices:

City Hall - 300 E Branch St, Arroyo Grande, CA 93402

Recreation Department - 1221 Ash St, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420
