The Parks Division maintains, improves, protects, and develops the City's parks, landscaped median islands, public building grounds, and the urban forest for the benefit and enjoyment of the community. We believe that attractive public open spaces and well maintained parks help to make El Cajon a better place to live and encourages civic pride. Our staff continually strives to provide the community the highest quality and level of service possible.  For more information call (619) 441-1658.

El Cajon was named a 2014 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management. The program has four requirements in order to receive this achievement:

  • A tree board or department
  • A tree-care ordinance
  • An annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita
  • An Arbor Day observance and proclamation
