Providing Places, Programs for Enjoyment

Quality recreation and leisure programs and safe and attractive parks and recreation facilities foster a healthy, active community. Here in Monterey, the Parks and Recreation Commission helps develop the top-rate programs, activities and maintenance schedules we have all come to depend on.

What is the purpose of the commission?

The seven-member Commission oversees a diverse program that includes camps, community centers, parks, baseball fields, playgrounds and the Recreation Trail. The Commission helps develop the network of events and programs that meet the needs of all age groups.

Projects the Commission has brought to the community include the Monterey Sports Center, four Community Centers, Dennis the Menace Playground, and the new Skate Park located behind Frank E. Sollecito Jr. Ballpark.
