Welcome to Tarzana Recreation Center! We appreciate the time you have taken to learn about us, and the programs we offer. Our commitment to recreation drives us to offer a variety of classes and programs for toddlers, children, adults and seniors. In addition we offer year round youth basketball and we operate three successful seasonal camps to service the needs of the West Valley’s busiest children. We hold several special events throughout the year, including our Fall Halloween Carnival, Spring Egg Hunt and together with the Tarzana Neighborhood Council & West Valley Warner Center Chamber of Commerce, our annual Community Earth Day Fair. Whether you are an active park user, enrolled in our classes and programs, or just here for a nice walk around the park, you will find Tarzana is a great place to be.

Thank You for making Recreation & Parks a part of your lifestyle.
