Desert Recreation District

For more than 70 years, Desert Recreation District (the District) has played a key role in enriching the quality of life for residents and visitors through the recreational services we offer in the Greater Coachella Valley.

The District is the largest park and recreation district in California, and we manage, maintain and assist in maintaining over 30 parks and recreation facilities; we create and deliver quality programs, services and classes; and, we facilitate leisure opportunities through partnerships with private and public agencies and entities as we strive to ensure members of the public receive personal benefits such as physical fitness, relaxation and revitalization; social benefits in the form of stronger and healthier families and enriching the lives for persons with disabilities, and economic benefits through more productive and healthier citizens and increased tourism.
