For over 100 years, the Department of Recreation and Parks has brought Los Angeles residents together to celebrate, to compete, to learn new skills and to relax with family and friends in safe, welcoming parks and recreational facilities. Our people, parks and programs enhance the quality of life in Los Angeles. Recreation and Parks recognizes the necessity and importance of positive partnerships to continue our vision to provide affordable recreational, physical and cultural opportunities. Throughout our history, we have created powerful partnerships to expand our services and make a difference in the communities we serve. The Department’s Partnership Division was created to enhance and expand existing programs and services beyond traditional programming through collaborative partnerships. We invite you to join us and make a difference in the lives of millions.
