ABOUT PLEASANT HILL RECREATION & PARK DISTRICT

Established on January 19, 1951, Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District was formed by the citizens who valued parks and recreational opportunities for all people in their community. Rec & Park became a special district, a unique government entity, separate from the City of Pleasant Hill and other organizations, and has grown to become a cornerstone of what makes Pleasant Hill such a great place to live. Today, Rec & Park provides and manages extensive District-owned parks, community facilities, open space, and recreation programs and events throughout the community. The support of the community and the countless volunteers over the years has been tremendous and paramount to many of Rec & Park efforts to improve, build and make life better for everyone. 

Our Vision: To be the leaders in providing WOW! experiences every day.
