Celebrate Park and Recreation Month!


Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. Created by the National Recreation and Park Association, Park and Recreation Month specifically highlights the vital and powerful role local parks and recreation play in conservation, health and wellness, and social equity efforts in communities across the country.

This year the Redlands City Council celebrates the vital role parks, open spaces, and recreation professionals play in bringing people together, providing essential services, and fostering the growth of our communities proclaiming July as Park and Recreation month!

It takes a lot of “people power” to keep City of Redlands parks maintained and the exciting recreation, youth, and senior programs offered by the City’s Community Partners running. Read on to learn more about the people and organizations behind Redlands’ parks and recreational opportunities.

City Parks & Trails:
Redlands residents and visitors enjoy a variety of park amenities, from picnic tables and play structures to community gardens and hiking trails.

The City’s parks are managed and maintained by the City of Redlands Facility and Community Services Department. Redlands parks also play host to many special community events throughout the year, including the Annual Redlands Bicycle Classic and the Redlands Festival of Arts.

Recreation Provider Partnerships
The city provides recreation, leisure, and community services through investment in outside service agencies which provide youth programs, athletic programs, senior services, arts and theater, and the facilities that operate these programs. Our non-profit partner organizations which provide these Recreational and Community Programs are experts at delivering some traditional services provided by city governments elsewhere. Investing in our established recreation non-profits leverages the talents, skills, networks, and resources already available in the community. This approach has been proven to be cost-effective, efficient, and flexible to meet the changing needs of the community.
