Welcome to the Parks & Recreation Dept

We want to welcome you to our Parks & Recreation Department webpage.  With recent public health directive by the County of San Diego, all parking lots are closed to vehicle traffic.  All recreation centers are closed with the exception that bathrooms are accessible 9:00 am-6:00 pm, Monday-Friday at Bostonia, Hillside, Kennedy and Renette Recreation Centers.  Most park bathrooms remain open and parks remain open for passive recreation.  For more information please link to the COVID-19 information on the left frame of this screen.

Beyond our parks and recreation services, the El Cajon City Council approved the National Recreation & Park Association grant funded El Cajon 2030: Connecting People with Parks plan.  The goal is to create a 10-minute walk to a city park for every resident from their home.  For more information, see the link below under Most Requested.
