The Department of Parks and Recreation offers an array of diverse programs, services and facilities to the residents of our city and the broader Sacramento community.
The Department prides itself in the many partnerships and collaborations with other governmental agencies, school districts, community-based organizations, neighborhood groups and the business sector for delivery of programs that serve our shared constituents. Only a third of the Department’s $32+ million operating budget is from the General Fund of the City. Grants, participant fees and support from the business community comprise significant sources of additional funding.
Key to the Departments successful framework are our staff (196 career and almost 1,700 part time/seasonal employees), and their individual and collective commitment to providing the best services possible. Their continual responsiveness in identifying and answering challenges and opportunities will have an impact on many generations to come.
The mission of the Department of Parks and Recreation is to ensure opportunities for people to Optimize the Experience of Living by creating environments for Safety, Engagement, Relationship building and Personal Development.
