Celebrate with us! 
The National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) has celebrated July as the official Parks and Recreation Month since 1985.  It has been done in appreciation of professional and volunteer men and women who have worked to advance opportunities for all to recreate and enjoy active and passive parks and facilities that enrich the quality of life.

The Glendale Parks and Recreation Department consists of full-time employees, part-time, temporary, and seasonal employees who maintain our parks and recreation facilities, and who also provide programming, services, and activities for the community. 

Parks and open spaces improve our health, strengthen our communities, and make our cities and neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work. Research shows that when people have access to parks, they exercise more. Physical activity has been shown to increase health and enhance psychological well-being, reduce the risk of a wide range of diseases, and relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Service to the community and providing quality parks and recreational programs continue to be the focus of the Glendale Parks and Recreation Department.
