The Parks and Community Services Department creates and enhances the quality of life for Davis residents and its visitors. The department consists of three divisions including Aquatics, Community Services, and Parks & Urban Forestry. Our primary goal is to provide and maintain recreation facilities, parks, urban forestry, and programs that help make people's lives better and the community more healthy, livable, and enjoyable.
A variety of recreational opportunities are provided for residents of all ages, including aquatics, alternative recreation for persons with disabilities, gymnastics and dance programs, outdoor education, specialty camps, special interest classes, teen services, senior services, youth and adult sports, paratransit, and the rental of community facilities, athletic fields, parks, and picnic areas. We are also proud to be responsible for the oversight and maintenance of over 485 acres of parks, greenbelts and an abundance of street trees.
The Parks & Community Services Department is also host to several City Commissions, including the Recreation and Park Commission, the Senior Citizens Commission and the Tree Commission. For more information or upcoming meeting dates, please click here Commissions.
